Time Machine


This Time Machine illustrates how ThirdWave went from an entrepreneurial startup, established on the Black Monday stock market crash (October 19, 1987) with a $3,000 investment. It went on to become a nationally recognized, international award winning, and highly respected technology company.  The Time Machine illustrates a remarkable depth and breadth of innovative thought leadership and an impressive body of trailblazing work.
