Young Touts tech-defense acceleration

Collaboration, teamwork and innovation were at the core of a recent conversation with Sen. Todd Young at Knowledge Services, Indiana's largest woman-owned business (WBE). Dioltas partner, Mike Dodd, led the talk, which highlighted Indiana's unique role in solving prickly national security problems.

The discussion centered around the implications of the Endless Frontier Act, bipartisan legislation which Sen. Young co-authored and co-sponsored. The Act, which would be the largest U.S. investment in research and development in the past 60 years, could infuse some $200 billion into 10 regional tech hubs. These centers for innovation--some to be located in the Midwest--will bring together academics, large and small businesses and government to solve complicated national security problems and ensure the U.S. has an edge over our adversaries.
