ISSUE – Oct. 17 | President Obama explains why you can’t run the U.S. like a startup

Last week, the White House held its Frontiers Conference in Pittsburgh, with a focus on what the U.S. government is doing for the future, in areas including space exploration, smart cities and more effective police accountability. President Obama ended the conference with a speech that included some real talk for startup founders and others in Silicon Valley who might think the White House and government in general could stand to borrow more heavily from the tech industry’s modus operandi.
