  27. 27. The goal must be to expand ourselves beyond one field of focus and use our improved access to information to solve the … challenges we face as an interconnected, global society. I believe the time is now…to embolden those disruptive individuals to help innovate our way out of the significant challenges our planet faces today. NAVEEN JAIN
