I am in Washington DC to meet with my elected officials and educate them about the growing mobile economy and tech innovation. I’m here with Emilie Hersh from.IK.
I have served the Association for Competitive Technology (ACT) since 1998 and it’s an honor to be a part of this amazing group.
The group is made up of leading entrepreneurs from across the country to participate in the Association for Competitive Technology Washington Fly-In. Around 50 of us, have descended on the nation’s capital to help lawmakers in the Congress and Senate recognize the incredible impact that small technology companies are having on our nation’s economy.
I have travelled to Washington DC (with some fly fishing in West Virginia before) to alert lawmakers about important issues including intellectual property and patent reform, data security and privacy, and regulatory obstacles to growth. We also look to areas where technology and policy can combine to meet the needs of industry and consumers.
These are all important issues that the federal government is facing. The outcomes really matter to me and that is why I will continue to try to make sure my voice is heard. Hopefully, an informed Congress will allow companies like InterKnowlogy and Actus to continue to flourish.
