In remarks to the Association for Corporate Growth's Silicon Valley chapter, JDSU President and CEO Tom Waechter called "collaborative innovation" a key to driving economic growth and fully capitalizing on technology's promise.

Waechter defined collaborative innovation as "innovation with a purpose" and called it the driving principle behind JDSU's brand and interaction with its customers. He said JDSU collaborates with world-class companies across a range of industries and has a unique opportunity to apply its technology expertise to drive innovation with real-world impact.

"We have seen amazing results when this expertise is combined and focused on real business needs and real market opportunities, not innovation for the sake of innovation," Waechter says.
