STORY

In 2005, Aseem Prakash was speaking about outsourcing at a conference in Montreal when a participant asked, “If even high-end work is going to China and India, what is left for us here in the West”?

“Innovate the future” was the reply from Aseem.

That conversation led to the creation of Center for Innovating the Future (CIF)
