The “INSPIRING MINDS” podcast, hosted by Justin Starbird and presented by The Edison Awards delves in to experiences of innovators & pioneers that are changing the world around us.
Take notes as they share with Justin how they navigated through research, development, and in true Thomas Edison fashion, marketed and sold their new found innovations.
Listen today as Justin talks with Edison Awards Executive Director, Frank Bonafilia about how the Edison Awards got its start, who was first recognized and what makes him so committed to innovation.
The Edison Awards is one of the few global platforms that really recognizes, honors, and fosters innovation innovators. Frank shares how, “it’s really the teams that we’re looking to recognize and honor. We’re doing this in the name of Thomas Edison, who we see as one of the greatest innovators of all time.”
Frank continues to be amazed how someone like Thomas Edison who’s been passed away over 100 years ago is still revered, and is the icon of innovation around the world. The world has come a long way from the recognition of a calling card compared to putting someone in space or making people’s lives secure.
