AREA 21'S PHILOSOPHY
AREA 21 is about connected solutions in our connected world.
LESSONS FOR EVERYONE
Seeds of today’s technology were planted long ago by philosophers, scientists, engineers, and investors.
Those seeds have grown into impressive fields delivering advanced technologies far beyond the imagination of their original investors.
Technological innovation has changed our lives in profound ways and will continue to do so.
People, Places, Things, Information, Computers, and Energy are interconnected. The connections are high-speed webs of fiber optics, 5G cellular and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. These are the components of Our Connected World.
Advanced Manufacturing CAD, CAM and 3D printing is changing how our world is built. Objects once impossible to make are now part of everyday life.
