Andrew Williams
CEO, Elite Innovations


As head of a product design firm in Wilmington and inventor himself, Andrew Williams depends on his laptop on a daily basis to do research, communicate and design. “At home, most everything in my house is networked – the TV, the thermostat, etc. It is great to be able to adjust your heat on your way home from work. At work, we rely heavily on cloud services such as SharePoint, TeamForge and QuickBooks online for convenience and automation.”

Regularly reads Google News/Finance, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, National Geographic and Greater Wilmington Business Journal.

Checks out the websites for industrial and product design Core77.com and yankodesign.com. “A lot of Stack Overflow for work.”

Listens to NPR podcasts – “always full of conversation starters, and it keeps me well informed” and TED Talks.

On TV, ESPN is almost always on; also watches FX and Discovery Channel.

Favorite shows include How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Vikings, Archer and True Detective.

Favorite books are Wayward Pines trilogy by Blake Crouch, Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Tip of the Spear by Jon T. Hoffman and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.

Go-to apps include PinterestSpotify, GolfNow and Out of Milk – “otherwise I would never have food in my fridge.”
