A master of innovation

HP’s remarkable contributions have also earned him recognition as Exporter of the Year by the Export-Import Bank of the United States and as a finalist for E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year in Northern California in 2008 and 2010.

But his influence goes beyond entrepreneurship; he is, in fact, a true ambassador for innovation and green solutions. For over two decades, he has consistently been at the forefront of introducing revolutionary ideas to the world.
