Leverage the Private Sector
The impact of government funding for research and critical tech initiatives can be multiplied dramatically by leveraging private sector participation.
For example: a $100 billion government investment in R&D in a key industry, like semiconductors can be stretched by offering it as a match for private companies who are willing to put “skin in the game” themselves. $100 billion becomes $200 billion.
Commercialization further multiplies the investment as supply chain partners of the original companies join in to commercialize solutions. A $100 billion investment grows to a $500 billion investment.
