  • "Alec's experiences have left him with knowledge that is both broadly strategic and critically hands-on. He's seen how the right technology policy can lift a country's economy, and how the wrong one can drive it into decline and irrelevance. During his time in Washington, Alec forged strong points of connectivity with Silicon Valley, as he worked to infuse more innovation, entrepreneurism, and new technologies into America's international diplomacy efforts."
