Penny Pritzker was U.S. Secretary of Commerce in the Obama administration from 2013 to 2017. An entrepreneur herself, she chaired the Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship (PAGE) program and now leads PSP Capital Partners, a global private investment firm. We spoke to her on the sidelines of our recent Techonomy 2017 conference (under 2-minute video).
“Tech leadership should be creating an opportunity for people in their organizations to go work in government for a year or two,” she said.
She also appeared onstage with GE’s Beth Comstock.
