Entrepreneurs and tech up-and-comers bring fresh ideas to the fore that can benefit everyone. But gaining traction in the marketplace and buy-in from the government sector is a challenge. My guests on this episode of Future Groove are experts in brokering small business and government relations, and are here to share lessons learned from years working at think tanks and on Capitol Hill. They’ve recently launched their own consulting firm to help startups engage with institutions on productive terms. They champion progress; nothing is formulaic. Now they’re sharing their wisdom with Downey students who are cultivating their own critical thinking skills and building credibility as future leaders.
