Cisco Logo

Cisco helps seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the unconnected. An integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships, working together to identify our customers’ needs and provide solutions that fuel their success.

We have preserved this keen focus on solving business challenges since our founding in 1984. Len Bosack and wife Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices, but technological shortcomings did not allow such communication. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols, and as a result of solving their challenge, the multiprotocol router was born.

Polara Golf Logo

Our mission is to maximize the joys of golf by designing and manufacturing balls and clubs that are not constrained by the US Golf Association.  In fact, the USGA created a design rule that limits our self-correcting, straight fight ball to recreational play.

The book, Moneyball tells the story of how traditional player statistics such as stolen bases and batting average were replaced after a rigorous statistical analysis revealed more relevant factors. Likewise, golf’s focus on the statistics of fairways hit or missed, greens hit or missed and number of putts was replaced by Strokes Gained. At Polara we analyze ShotLink, the PGA’s database of all golf drives, approach shots and putts to design golf balls and clubs that minimize dispersion and improve a golfer’s Strokes Gained performance.
