Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai speaks on the truth about innovation in a lecture at the St. James Armenian Church Men’s Club at Watertown, MA on January 8, 2018. We are led to believe that innovation always happens at big universities or the military or big corporations but the truth is that innovation can take place any place, any time, by anybody. The ecosystem for innovation comes from our mothers, teachers, mentors and our families.
Dr. Shiva shares his journey through the public school system and how he invented email as a 14-year old. This, more than anything exemplifies the truth about innovation coming from ordinary people. He also talks about how his mother inculcated the spirit of innovation and excellence in him at a very young age.
