Emerging Technology Meets National Security

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 

Online, 90 Minute Program


Join VCs, entrepreneurs, national security professionals, and more at this year’s virtual Emerging Technology Meets National Security conference, where we will discuss the pressing security issues impacting venture and startups.


Hear from Tom Feddo of the Treasury Department on how new CFIUS authorities are being implemented, and from Matt Borman of the Commerce Department on the “emerging and foundational technologies” rulemaking that could subject many more venture-backed companies to the CFIUS process and impact the ability of foreign nationals to work at U.S. companies.

In addition, you’ll hear from venture peers and national security experts with a panel on Venture Capital & National Security: What’s Around the Corner?
