Qualcomm Inc.

What makes an idea good? Ask Navrina Singh, the head of Qualcomm’s global innovation program ImpaQt.

“For me, it’s not so much about a good idea. It’s about the vision and the person behind it,” said Singh, who is also director of business development for Qualcomm Labs. “You might have something in your head, but if you don’t act on it and take it to the next level it’s worth nothing.

“For us, at Qualcomm, an idea literally has the power to change the world. What I get to do every day is something I love: work with our employee base all over the world, hear their ideas and give them tools and creative environments to turn these ideas into real products.”
