Keeping Us Connected

Arshon Technology Inc.

Arshon Technology Inc. Founder and CEO Mazi Hosseini was struck with a groundbreaking idea while on a cruise in the Mediterranean Sea. “We had no connection whatsoever to outside of the cruise,” he remembers. The lack of cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity posed a problem when his family wanted to find one another on the sprawling ship. “I could not talk to my son or my wife. We didn’t know where we were. The cruise was significantly large. We had to find each other just by walking around.”

Making their Mark in a Male-Dominated Industry

Women have made incredible strides in the mining industry. Just a few decades ago, states throughout the U.S. had laws that actually prohibited women from working underground. Folklore banned women from mines as well; common belief held that women brought bad luck to a mine or that they were too fragile to handle the demands of working underground. It was not uncommon for women to be outright denied entry to a mine as they began pushing into the industry in the 1970s.

Fortress Power

Pennsylvania-based Fortress Power got its start when electrical engineer Jing Yu and longtime business manager Barry Moore decided to provide a better solar energy storage solution. The industry insiders recognized the need for a reliable battery to store solar energy produced during the day, when most people are not at home to take advantage of the power.
