Quotes

...There Are No Easy Answers " (HarperBusiness, 2014), Ben Horowitz, a co-founder of the ventureventure capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, says that "figuring out the right product is the innovator’s job, not the customer’s job.” The problem is many robotics entrepreneurs tend to take this notion to the extreme, investing considerable time and money but in the end producing a robot without a clear value proposition for the customer."
"My view is, it'll make some people some money, but it's not much of a solution, because you're still burning fuel and creating emissions" said Daniel Kammen, director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory at UC Berkeley. "It's a good business deal."
Dineen told GTM, "I've never seen technology that has such great potential to transform the way we think about natural gas and renewables."
In an email sent to BostInno, Zuberi said he's "sure" the condo building has a no-sublease rule to protect residents. "I never paid attention to it though and never though a tenant would sublease this way."
