A Passion to Innovate

Welcome to the third edition of MillennialEYE. We have enjoyed a rapid and continuous evolution that has taken on a mind of it’s own—which was the hope. Like all things innovative, this idea was born out of a realization of the need and a desire to push the industry. For years, ME’s publisher and crusader of fostering next-generation thinkers, Tammy Bogetti and I, had been discussing a way to capture and unite the innovative spirit of youthful minds. She proposed an all-digital media rich app-based periodical as a novel forum to do this. The executives at Bryn Mawr Communications had the vision to support this project and viola, ME was born.

This story is fitting for this edition: innovation. Innovation starts with a vision, which is what this is all about. Here’s to Tammy who had the vision to create a forum for you to share yours.

Inside you will find intimate stories shared from emerging thought leaders on how they have followed their passion to innovate. Now it’s your turn.

“Once we rid ourselves of traditional thinking we can get on with creating the future.”

— James Bertrand
