Hacking4Defense and Beyond

Noon - 1 PM ET

From national security to natural disasters, from energy to the environment, the critical challenges we face today have common elements: they cut across government, private and non-profit sectors and are constantly evolving in a fast-moving world. These challenges require a problem-based approach to ensure solutions are relevant, grounded and implementable in the real world.

While there are ways to address these challenges in the commercial ecosystem, there is an equally important opportunity in the mission centric ecosystem. This session will introduce the concept of mission-focused entrepreneurship method created by Steve Blank.
