    FUSION PROGRAM

    A SYNTHESIS OF THE POSSIBLE

    WSIE SYNTHESIZES PERSPECTIVES TO CREATE AN INSPIRING AND DIFFERENTIATED EXPERIENCE.

    WSIE stages a synthesis between the three dimensions of the world’s Intelligence Trilemma: the desire for greater creativity, the need for smarter functionality and the demand for better livability.

    At WSIE, our Innovation Fusion approach allows members to collide and combine solutions from distinct and distant fronts. To inspire potently different methods, prototypes and offerings that yield transformations that advance business competitiveness and make people healthier, happier and more intelligent.
