As the tech boom permeates throughout the globe, leaders in STEM are more essential now than ever.
Every day, we witness the innovation and technological creativity that changes the course of the human experience significantly. However, in order for innovation to succeed, it needs two things: 1) funding and 2) brainpower.
We need the smartest people in the world to be incentivized to work on our most important global issues to impact the 7 billion people currently living and future generations who will set foot on Earth someday.
