Organic Innovation, Disruptive Technology and Social Impact
Meet Brooke Wurst (C'94), founder and CEO of Remote Harbor Inc. and hear how Remote Harbor came about in the context of those concepts – how a community's desire to decrease the 40% HIV prevalence drove disruptive technology to a new level in health care, disaster relief, fair labor practices, and beyond.
Most technological innovations emerge from university labs and spend the early part of their life cycle searching for problems to solve. RemoteID, Remote Harbor, Inc.'s patent-pending wireless biometric data management system, had a different beginning, emerging from a village without electricity in remote sub-Saharan Africa.
