Innovation Ecosystems Summit at Stanford University

“In periods of turmoil, industry transformation is a given. There are two kinds of companies, ones that play chess and ones that play checkers. The chess players shape their destiny while the checkers players have it inflicted upon them. . . You have to consider the total ecosystem, its funding base and its diverse global customer base.
- John Roese, Senior Vice President and GM North American R&D at Huawei
