We recently had the pleasure of meeting with Senator Chris Murphy to help demonstrate some new security technology created by our partners at Penn Globe. The technology itself is pretty exciting (Penn Globe has developed a method to integrate cameras and other security features into their classic gaslight-style lamps in order to make towns and campuses safer), but what’s really interesting is the way that they’ve tapped into a range of business resources that help foster innovation in Connecticut.
