United States: Morris Ellison To Discuss “Building An International Mobility Center” With Columbia World Affairs Council
Last Updated: October 16 2017

COLUMBIA, S.C.—Womble Carlyle lawyer Morris Ellison will discuss "Building an International Mobility Center:  The German/Israeli/American Innovation Triangle" at the Oct. 18 meeting of the Columbia World Affairs Council.

​In an increasingly technological society, the keys to any successful business include coming up with new ideas, implementing them and keeping operations, products and services fresh. "Innovation," the process of bringing those ideas to reality, plays a large role both for small and big companies in the national and international context. Throughout industry, new forms of information technologies are being implemented and are constantly evolving, so that yesterday's innovations may already be outdated today.  Ready or not, the "Mobility Revolution" is upon us.

Germany, the United States and Israel have become leading countries, regarding innovation and invention and the commercialization of these ideas. Virtually every German auto manufacturer has established an "innovation center" in Israel.  Israel is often referred to now as "start-up nation."  More Israeli companies are listed on NASDAQ than all European and Indian companies combined.   Extraordinary ideas are often born in Israel, especially in the area of cyber security and mobile technology.

South Carolina has the opportunity to play a key role in the "mobility revolution." South Carolina is the North American home for many German automotive manufacturers. By capitalizing on its circumstances surrounding the existing South Carolina economy, our state can become a key player in the United States/German/Israeli Innovation Triangle.
