Examining the Root Causes of America’s Innovation Crisis

[4 minute run time]
Ms. Judy Estrin, author of “Closing the Innovation Gap”, former CTO of Cisco Systems, and a successful serial entrepreneur, took some time out of our seminar on Innovation on February 15, 2009 during the Aspen Institute Socrates Society Winter program in Aspen, Colorado to discuss some of the root causes of America’s Innovation crisis. This interview was conducted specifically in advance of the third annual IT Security Entrepreneurs’ Forum (ITSEF III) Innovation panel held at Stanford University on March 18, 2009 and was first released at the conference.
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. Pascal Levensohn, Founder and Managing Partner of Levensohn Venture Partners, moderates the panel, with panelists Dr. Curtis Carlson, President and CEO of SRI International, Dr. Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande, Chairman Sparta Group, LLC and Ms. Lesa Mitchell, VP Advancing Innovation, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
ITSEF is a part of the Security Innovation Network (SINet). For more information on SINet, click here.
