Today's guest is Molly Cain, whose long list of accomplishments includes: former director of innovation for Homeland Security, Founder of GovCity, the first 48-hour think tank for positively disruptive civic, corporate and academic emerging leaders, during SXSW. She is also a government and civic innovation strategist, executive communications consultant and advisor to public/private sector entities. She is an expert at identifying + designing new ventures for organizational change, launching new verticals, organizing never-before-done collaborations, relying on an uncanny skill to connect topics + people in seemingly unrelated, but perfectly complimentary, ways. After more than 10 years as an award-winning strategic business communicator specializing in information security, cyber security, resilience, disaster recovery, finance, policy and acquisitions, Molly found her love of technology and its intersection with cultural disruption by fortuitous mistake in 2013, leading her to abandon her corporate career to enter the startup ecosystem. She is a 3-time startup founder, angel investor and successfully led one of the nation’s top ten startup accelerators from 2014 to 2016 as Executive Director, overseeing a portfolio of more than 100 startups, tech scouting more than 1500 worldwide for potential recruitment into the top-ranked program. .
