"I love being in a work environment that celebrates different professional disciplines and, frankly, all kinds of brains. Solar engineers working side-by-side with front-end UX designers, traffic analysts seated next to digital artists."

"Idealab is a place where there are no little people. Everyone gets visibility; everyone makes an impact; and everyone rises with the tides. At the end, we are just a bunch of entrepreneurially-charged people convinced that we can change the world."
