Newly reestablished NACIE charged with producing three moonshots

July 28, 2022
By: Conor Gowder

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo led the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship’s (NACIE) first meeting since being re-established, where she charged the council with identifying and developing roadmaps for three “transformative achievements” that will “serve as the core of an American National Entrepreneurship Strategy” to “improve our prosperity and strengthen our economic and national security.” Once the moonshots are decided upon, Raimondo said the council will recommend how the country can develop the technologies to achieve the goals.

More specifically, the council has been tasked with providing recommendations on how to broadly support innovation and entrepreneurship, ranging from growing STEM workforces to removing barriers faced by entrepreneurs, reflective of NACIE’s goal of providing policy and legislative recommendations to further the innovation economy across the U.S.
