    How is Ingenu in this list when it is not even building it’s “Machine Network” at all anymore? Haven’t put a base station on a tower in over a year and has no money to pay their vendors or their employees. I guess that is what happens when you inflate your technology and it can’t do what you state it can do in your marketing. His company won’t last into 2018.
