StateScoop Radio: Virginia backs nonprofit helping national security agencies

This edition of StateScoop Radio focuses on a new nonprofit launched in partnership with Arlington, Virginia, aimed at bringing together entrepreneurs with forward-thinking technology ideas and national security agencies, likethe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Called TandemNSI, the nonprofit is a public-private partnership founded by Jonathan Aberman, the managing director of Amplifier Ventures. The state of Virginia has backed the project providing it with a $500,000 grant.

Aberman recently joined StateScoop Radio to discuss the nonprofit and during the conversation highlights a white paper that illustrates how national security agencies have adopted a number of experimental approaches to solving criticalproblems and advocates for broader adoption of these and other approaches to tap an essential national asset.
