Global Competition and the Critical Role of Venture Capital in America’s Growth Economy
[RUN TIME 3 MINUTES 17 SECONDS]
Dr. Curtis Carlson, President and CEO of SRI International, speaking on the panel with Dr. Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande, Chairman Sparta Group, LLC and Lesa Mitchell, VP Advancing Innovation, Kauffman Foundation, at the IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum 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 discusses the fragility of the U.S. venture capital ecosystem and how the U.S. Government needs to better understand the role of venture capital as the growth engine in the U.S. economy. Dr. Carlson also describes the declining competitive position of the U.S. in research and development today.
ITSEF is a part of the Security Innovation Network (SINet). For more information on SINet, click here.
