Bridging the Continental Divide: From the Valley to D.C.
The gap between the Valley and Washington, D.C., is much more than 3,000 miles. The distance between the "corporate culture" of the two most strategic communities on Planet Earth is light-years. And it represents not simply one vast threat to the creative/innovative culture, but to American power and global stability.
In this panel moderated by Nigel Cameron, president of D.C.-based startup think tank the Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies (C-PET), which plans to change this situation, we ask how we can bridge the Continental Divide and do the impossible: turn D.C. into the kind of innovative community we all desire?
