Life Changing Conversations for Entrepreneurs

Way to Go IBM

Way to Go IBM

In my youth I discounted companies like IBM as being capable of true innovation. I take it all back, or rather, the world has changed and the best companies have adapted mightily.

Here’s the proof. Engineered nanoparticles capable of targeting and destroying antibiotic-resistant bacteria is the stuff that sci-fi movies are made of. But IBM, who has been working on nanotechnology for decades, has recently begun applying this technology to the medical field. These biodegradable nanoparticles are 50,000 times smaller than the thickness of a human hair and are showing promise in their ability to fight against deadly bacteria, such as MRSA – which is responsible for taking thousands of lives each year.

This is testament to the power of the entrepreneurial spirit. IBM has identified a massive need and is taking great strides to meet that need with a viable solution coming out of left field. Not a drug – but a technology acting like a drug.
