Cliff Schorer explains who is changing the face of business today.
Question: Who are some business innovators?
Clifford Schorer: Well, I think there are many of them. I know actually my daughter's employed by a company named Myriad Genetics. She's in genetics and I see a startup that's on the exchange that hasn't made any money yet but is growing and growing and growing. So I think there are a lot of them out there. They're not household names but they're pretty exciting. I think there's a lot going on in transportation. You look at the — I can't think of the name of it — the little car that's coming out that's being produced on the West Coast, somebody's going into the car business and producing an energy-efficient car. Well, if you think about that, I don't think there's been a new car company started in this country in 50 years or something and here's somebody saying, "No. I got to get a better mousetrap." So there are people taking these potential technologies and really launching new businesses that are going to have dramatic impact.
