About this Event

There’s never been a more important time to bring entrepreneurial experience and energy into public service. In this panel, you’ll hear from Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIFs) who work hand-in-hand with leaders across the federal government to lead the way on product strategy. They’ll share their journeys from private-sector to public-sector technology, and what they’ve learned along the way. You’ll learn how they’re using their experience as founders, entrepreneurs, and investors to tackle challenges across foreign aid, AI, digital marketing, defense innovation, and more. We’ll end with time for audience Q&A.

We'll also share details on the opportunity to join our next cohort of Presidential Innovation Fellows. Applications are open through May 14 at
