I'm working on a story about how Trump is being inaugurated while lacking many of the tech-related administration nominations that should have been made by now. If you feel you can provide comment or analysis of the importance of some of these positions, let me know:

Director, Office of Science and Technology Policy (under Executive Office of the President)

Under secretary for science and technology (Homeland Security)

Under secretary for acquisition, technology and logistics (Dept. of Defense)

I spent a couple hours this afternoon talking strategy with Sarah Marion, from iNovia Capital (the top VC fund in Canada)

Generally I don't think entrepreneurs engage as much as they should with analysts and associates–there's this misconception that you should only deal with "decision-making partners". That's BS

Sarah had a think-piece published in VentureBeat this week: venturebeat.com/2017/01/17/chatbots-are-still-missing-one-important-ingredient/

I won't be surprised if she follows in Karam's footsteps and makes it to partner, if that's what she chooses to do: www.canadianbusiness.com/innovation/change-agent/karamdeep-nijjar-inovia-capital/

Incidentally, iNovia has an open Analyst position right now. You can reach out to Sarah about that, specifically, or do as I do and try to get her advice on your business: www.linkedin.com/in/sarahmarion/
