Bio for Tony Cucolo

Abstract:
The Quest for a Defense Innovation Ecosystem in Texas
The National Security Innovation Council of Texas is a public-private consortium whose sole purpose is to strengthen the defense of the nation by focusing on solving difficult national security problems at rapid speed. Additionally, NSIC takes an honest broker, “whole-of-state” approach to bringing more national security investment and research dollars into the State of Texas. This is about creating speed in problem solving, increasing the level of government support to innovation, and allowing Texas-based companies and institutions access to more opportunities collectively than they could individually. NSIC is taking an ambitious and holistic approach in creating an operational model that sustains shared understanding of national security problems, constantly renews awareness of Texas-based entities who can solve those problems, and effectively guides activities to connect the two and enable solutions.
