" Innovation relies on technology, but not technology alone. Technology officers want to bring in new revenues, increase customer satisfaction, and focus on the benefits side, not just the cost side. Their job increasingly requires creativity and calls for identifying new opportunities, and then pursuing them.  Initiatives such as MoHo brings some fresh air in the way innovation is perceived, conceived, and implemented.  That can only be beneficial to the society as a whole.

" Centrale and ESSEC students have showed much dynamism and entrepreunarial spirit. I think their journey to  Stanford and their experience in MoHo will broaden their vision of innovation. They will especially realize the importance of "open innovation". Good luck and come back from the USA with heads full of new ideas. "
