Aneesh Chopra, first CTO for the United States, added to #451HCTS agenda

451 Research is excited to announce that Aneesh Chopra will be our guest speaker at this year’s Hosting + Cloud Transformation Summit. During his tenure as the first-ever chief technology officer for the United States, Aneesh was a vital asset to the President. He designed the National Wireless Initiative, helped launch Startup America, and executed an "open innovation" strategy focused on better public-private collaboration.

Chopra is the cofounder and executive vice president of Hunch Analytics, a “hatchery” incubating ideas that improve the productivity of health and education markets, including NavHealth, an open data intelligence service. He serves as a member of the council on Virginia’s Future, and in 2015, served as the inaugural Walter Shorenstein Media and Democracy Fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. In 2011, Chopra was named to Modern Healthcare's list of the “100 Most Influential People in Healthcare” and in 2008, to Government Technology magazine's “Top 25” in their Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers issue. He is a senior advisor to The Advisory Board Company, a health-care consultancy, and to Albright Stonebridge Group, a premier strategic advisory and commercial diplomacy firm.

Upon Chopra’s departure as U.S. CTO, President Obama noted, "as the federal government's first chief technology officer, Aneesh Chopra did groundbreaking work to bring our government into the 21st century. Aneesh found countless ways to engage the American people using technology, from electronic health records for veterans, to expanding access to broadband for rural communities, to modernizing government records. His legacy of leadership and innovation will benefit Americans for years to come, and I thank him for his outstanding service."

Chopra earned his master's degree in Public Policy from Harvard University in 1997, and his bachelor's degree from The Johns Hopkins University in 1994.

In his presentation, “Innovative State: Growth Opportunities for Entrepreneurs and Innovations”, Aneesh will describe his journey to create a more open and transparent government through collaboration with the private sector.

On his initial day in office, President Obama directed the United States’ first chief technology officer to foster a more open and transparent government. Aneesh Chopra helped usher in a new era of collaboration with the private sector, one that focused on creating the jobs and industries of the future, while solving key problems in the public and regulated sectors of the economy. Drawing on his experience of promoting productivity growth through the “impatient convening” role of government, Chopra set forth to tap the expertise of the American people. Borrowing techniques from state-of-the-art companies, he developed an “open innovation” strategy to make government smarter and more responsive to private-sector demands. In this enlightening presentation, Chopra explores future possibilities for data innovation to improve key growth markets, including healthcare, energy and education, illustrated by his recent work to apply data analytics to improve matchmaking between employers, job seekers and training programs. He will also share his insights on how organizations can apply similar approaches to develop new products and services to meet growing customer demands.

We hope that you will make time in your schedule to gain the expertise of this industry visionary.  If you still haven‚Äôt registered to hear from our dynamic lineup of speakers, there are only a few weeks remaining to do so.
