Unintended Consequences of Regulation Put Fragile VC and Innovation Ecosystems at Grave Risk

[run time 46 seconds]
Dr. Curtis Carlson, President and CEO of SRI International, speaking on a panel with Dr. Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande, Chairman Sparta Group, LLC, and Lesa Mitchell, VP Advancing Innovation, Kauffman Foundation, 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. Dr. Carlson addresses the challenges that exist today for the U.S. to build an innovation economy. He credits unintended consequences from financial regulation, in particular Sarbanes Oxley and current U.S. immigration policy for highly skilled foreign nationals, as killers of innovation in the U.S. today.
ITSEF is a part of the Security Innovation Network (SINet). For more information on SINet, click here.
