Arrow's CSR Mission: Innovating Today

Good ideas are everywhere. But innovators are rare. Innovators punch through the status quo to deliver a solution that is both practical and provides an exciting new solution. 

To identify innovators and guide them forward, Arrow partners with incubators, accelerators and technology competitions. We pursue these partnerships in the conviction that the organized process of iteration, presentation, mentorship and competition distills interesting ideas into real innovations that may benefit society and turns dreamers into entrepreneurs.

Office moves happen, and the logistics and organizational details may well fall to...
