Ben stole my question.LOL
In case Dr. Ulvick does not cover this, I would like to know as an entrepreneur, what are the biggest challenges or problems that his customers are focusing on that would still be relevant in the next 10-15 years?

Hello everyone, I’d like to know, from your experience, when (generally speaking) is it time to begin considering angel/venture investment? Thank you.
What mind set will investor have after this current environment were in?
Do you think this situation were in will produce more small business/ entreprenuers?
don't be shy folks....please ask questions!
I've always found In-Q-Tel to be a fascinating model for bringing new and emerging technologies with intelligence or homeland security applications into the federal government in a faster and less bureaucratic way than a typical government contracts & acquisitions process. What advice would you give for a startup (perhaps a FedTech startup) interested in pitching their technology to In-Q-Tel?
I think Lockheed Martin also has a venture arm - can you please share more about it. and how it fits in the overall LM strategy
What skills would you recommend entrepreneurs to invest in acquiring over the next couple of years given the current business climate?
Do you know any network of business angels or early stage investors with a good reputation (ie no "easy money")?
Is it recommended that we sign NDAs with early investors?
how would you recommend someone get involved with a early stage start-up, if they want to get their feet wet or don't have their own idea to currently pursue.
