Small Businesses, Big Innovations at Diversifying the DIB
From June 14-16, INSA hosted small disadvantaged businesses, top IC leaders, and an audience of hundreds of public, private and academic leaders for Diversifying the DIB: Small Business National Security Showcase, a two day virtual program followed by an in-person networking reception.
The virtual presentations spanned two days and included capability overviews of innovative AI/ML, advanced analytics, cyber and hardware and software development. The Showcase concluded with a networking reception at the Archer Hotel in Tysons Corner on Thursday, June 16, where 150 attendees gathered to connect in-person, build new relationships and hear from Randy Nixon, Director of Digital Futures at CIA. In his remarks, Nixon emphasized the importance of small businesses to the national security mission and the agency's commitment to collaborate and find solutions to our most pressing challenges.
