NVCA's Emerging Technology Meets National Security conference will facilitate dialogue between emerging technology investors, companies, and Washington security agencies and professionals. The event will enable venture capital firms and technology companies to better understand the interests of U.S. national security agencies, particularly as they relate to foreign investment, technology transfer, and misappropriation. It will help firms and companies better understand national security legal and policy issues that will impact their strategic decision-making, including CFIUS, cybersecurity, export controls, sanctions, and anti-money laundering (AML). The conference will allow national security officials to better understand emerging technology interests and operating realities by explaining how young companies innovate, their need for capital to grow, and the role of venture capital.
The event co-chairs are Ted Schlein (Kleiner Perkins), Ray Rothrock (RedSeal), Bedy Yang (500 Startups), and Mike Madsen (DIUx).
