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?
