Join the Veterans Roundtable interest group for a robust conversation on the use of private capital to support strategic national security innovation. Well-placed investments can help the United States maintain its globally competitive edge in the digital age while facilitating development in areas including cybersecurity, surveillance, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

As the US government continues to publicly seed  innovation through the Department of Defense and Intelligence community technology initiatives, the private sector faces a unique investment opportunity. Complex security challenges require creative solutions. Investing to support these solutions means more than simply capitalizing on their substantial commercial potential; an investment in secure technology infrastructure is an investment in a secure future for the United States.
