[run time 1 minute 27 seconds]
Dr. Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande, Chairman Sparta Group, LLC speaking on a panel the third annual IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum (ITSEF) held at Stanford University on March 18, 2009 with Lesa Mitchell, VP Advancing Innovation, Kauffman Foundation, and Dr. Curtis Carlson, President and CEO of SRI International. Pascal Levensohn, Founder and Managing Partner of Levensohn Venture Partners moderated the panel. Since 2007, ITSEF has focused on advancing innovation in security technologies through public-private partnerships by developing a community of interest between Washington and Silicon Valley. ITSEF is the only conference of its kind designed to “bridge the gap” between the Federal Government, system integrators, venture capitalists, and academic research communities. Deshpande explains how universities and research institutes like SRI International are at the center of gravity for innovation today.
ITSEF is a part of the Security Innovation Network (SINet). For more information on SINet, click here.
