This trend will continue in Saudi Arabia, China and other communities with aspirations around the globe. The new mobility means new inventors driving a new value chain. This month’s featured members are again software experts who are bringing novel software to create better driving behavior, create insightful technology road maps and safe infrastructure networks.

The curated I-Hub provides resources to commercialize and monetize Intellectual Property, and to access software, events, novel databases, special reports, government resources, in-the-pulse blogs, and innovation leader presentations.

As always, we invite all readers to join our intellectual property marketplace, free of charge, and engage the community and to attend one of the over 100 global conferences we will support this year to personally engage the change agents.
