As a kid, what did you want to be when you “grew up”?
Astronaut… who doesn’t want to go to the moo?. We live in an era when humans will land on Mars.
How far can YOU see?
I see a connected world in the future. The last decade has connected us virtually through the Internet. The next few decades will be about mobility. The air-space will be utilized in ways never imagined before, through drones, through flying cars. Autonomous flying vehicles will change the way humans move and interact with others.
One insightful fact you want everyone to know:
Every failure is an opportunity.
