One of the biggest reasons he serves on the innovation board for XPRIZE is because he wants to be able to inspire other people to create their own innovations and use their ideas to bring humanity to a brighter future. Eric has made plenty of innovations for himself, starting up many companies of his own, but he gained interest in XPRIZE due to the services they offer and what they are trying to accomplish.
XPRIZE is trying to use the power of competition to held inspire people to works towards goal that would benefit the overall good of all people. Since people are highly competitive by nature, this is quite an effective method. Many people just need a goal in their sites to be inspired to reach it. By giving people a target to reach and allowing them to come up with any solution they want, regardless of who they are or where the come from, many creative and innovative people will come together to join in. XPRIZE is always looking for new potential to participate.
