“Whether it’s defense, commercial real estate, or something else, there are few industries out there where software has not eaten the world yet and taken over.”

“It’s impossible not to be passionate about what we’re doing (at Second Front) and how a strong defense ecosystem in America makes the world a better and safer place. It was an easy decision to be part of a company that’s trying to drive that forward.”

“Sure, there are a lot of front doors that can get you started, like the DIU or AFWERX, but if you don’t have a sponsor on the backend who’s willing to bring you in and adopt you at scale, it’s going to be a challenge. So, you have to be very selective about who you end up investing your cycles in.”
