If you had five minutes and 20 slides to change the world, what would you say?
At Ignite Ann Arbor, Ingenex Digital Marketing CEO Derek Mehraban told the world about A2 Fiber, Ann Arbor’s bid for Google’s ultra-broadband network. The event, part of the Global Ignite Week, drew an enthusiastic crowd of more than 400 to Blau Auditorium at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business.
A2 Fiber is a collaboration between the University of Michigan and the city of Ann Arbor to be selected for Google’s test network of ultra high-speed broadband, which will have data stream rates of 1 gigabit per second. Derek’s presentation highlighted the advantages Ann Arbor has in competing for the bid, including U-M’s academic prestige, alumni connections like Google founder Larry Page and the high-tech entrepreneurial community in the city of Ann Arbor.
