More companies need to come forward and adopt these kids into their ecosystem and nurture them. I am sure, it would be a win-win situation for both. We are helping out our local industry improve their designs and have been contacted by many original equipment manufacturers for this. We are open to helping out our competitors and peers implement this methodology at their Universities and Institutions.
