In 1888, in the midst of a turbulent, constantly changing economy, two brothers dared to begin a start-up company in Binghamton. Come learn how Harlow and Willard Bundy did it, and the roles of community, politics, and patents in their success. You’ll get new, refreshing perspectives on our current times as Marcia and Harvey compare 2017 to the year 1888, when a Bundy patent led to formation of the company that later became IBM.
