This month was about playing hard and working hard. We held our first company-wide day of innovation, kicked off emerging tech panels for next year’s SXSW, and further explored the Internet of Things. After a month of forward-thinking, we’re excited to look back and share in this issue of the Roundup.

Union Bank Spurs Youth Financial Literacy
Union Bank came to us with a vision to teach financial literacy to children. Together we built Yuby, a convenient and interactive tool that uses “virtual” money to instill the fundamentals of responsible spending, saving, budgeting and giving.
