We harness the drive of industry and the genius of Stanford to change the world.

We are the industry affiliate program to Stanford’s H-STAR Institute. We help our members explore how the thoughtful use of technology can impact a range of fields, from entertainment to learning to commerce. Together, we’re researching innovative ways for people to collaborate, communicate, and interact with the information, products, and industries of tomorrow. We explore the use of information technology to improve the human experience.
