iF client and McMaster University student, Hussam Harroun, is the innovator behind the Cinnos Smart Mission Critical Rack, a data storage unit that he feels has the potential to transform how the world stores and manages information.

His innovation is so promising that he was selected to present at this year’s Falling Walls Venture conference, one of the most prestigious science innovation conferences in the world!
