I would like to support that statement 100%.
With Rector Alan Shepard we organized two innovation conferences, board meeting level and invited executives. Lawyers and consultants showed up, but not a single executive from a senior corporation showed up, so either we're not credible, or they don't care. It can be true in either case, right?
There's something that's not making any sense in our ecosystem. There's no notion of early adopters. I was in San Francisco for a full week last week, and the repeated statement was the start-ups are stealth weapons. That's how they see it.
The big corporations can't do it. It's against their short-term interest; it doesn't work. The more you go to feed those systems.... The French have got it. The Europeans have got it. SAP, which is a German company, has a fund for start-ups. I could list 50 of them that have done it, but I can't come up with a number of Canadian ones that have done it.
We have this early adopter. I completely agree, we definitely have a lack of awareness of our corporate system in early adoption of these technologies and how to do it with these fear systems, you know, these parallel planets. Everyone has to align with this. Others have. The French have. Silicon Valley has. There's no reason why we shouldn't. There's nothing stopping us from doing it.
