      How Draper creates a culture that sparks innovation.

      Finding new uses for existing technologies can be a powerful force for innovation. For example, the same technology that saves stranded astronauts can help firefighters navigate smoke-filled buildings. But it takes more than a big intellectual property catalogue to make new products out of old tech: It takes a corporate culture that embraces diversity and encourages collaboration. Draper CIO Mike Crones explains how he fosters a culture that drives innovation.
