Recording: 2023: Is the ROI for Defense Investing Changing?, Mar 12, 2023

Early stage venture investing in the national security market has been a niche activity until recent years. Despite the nuanced differences which historically made the government sector less attractive, private investment in the defense sector is only gaining momentum. With the threat of a looming recession, however, and the Ukraine-Russia conflict ever present, will the ROI change for national security investing?
This session will explore how and when investments in dual use technologies and national security sectors make sense – and when they don’t. We’ll look at how the significant economic changes over the last two years have affected these opportunities – and what to expect over the next year. Join us as we discuss this changing landscape that's vital to US success.
