Twelve of Voices for Innovation’s most engaged members form the organization’s 2015 Advisory Task Force. Long-time Microsoft partners, our Task Force leaders hail from California, Florida, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, and Washington DC.
Members of the Task Force bring their diverse small business perspective to discussion of tech public policies. Task Force members also serve as ambassadors for VFI to their local tech and broader business communities.
Even before we formed the Task Force, these highly engaged VFI members have been active in supporting public policies that foster innovation and business growth. They have met with their federal and state legislators and visited the White House for a meeting with Administration officials. One Task Force member — Naomi Moneypenny — testified at a Senate hearing about the value of software patents. Several Task Force members participated in a trip to China this spring.
