Lesa Mitchell, VP Advancing Innovation, Kauffman Foundation speaks on a panel with Dr. Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande, Chairman Sparta Group, LLC, Dr. Curtis Carlson, President and CEO of SRI International, and moderator Pascal Levensohn, Founder and Managing Partner of Levensohn Venture Partners. The panel is at the third annual IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum (ITSEF) held at Stanford University on March 18, 2009. 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. Ms. Mitchell discusses how the U.S. must re-evaluate its immigration policy.
ITSEF is a part of the Security Innovation Network (SINet). For more information on SINet, click here.
