  • The Menlo Institute and its affiliated Menlo Companies are named in honor of Thomas Edison and the work environment and productivity demonstrated at Menlo Park. It is ironic that the best example we could find of a productive work and team environment was one created over 120 years ago by a young up and coming Thomas Edison. The example he established of cooperative development, open and collaborative workspace and a spirit of innovation and invention is the example we follow today in the creation of Software Factories.
