Craig's Answer
I daydream about starting a company or non-profit that helps others bring their ideas to life. The space would have all the equipment, technology, and staff to be able to prototype anything. The idea is similar to a maker space, just on a whole other level in terms of professionalism and quality of the space. The daydream also includes a whole program for bringing in college and high school students so that they really understand what STEM looks like in the real world, and to peak their interest around science and technology.
