Help needed at the White House?
PRINCETON — A Princeton native participated in a recent “think tank” exercise at the White House ... yes, the one in Washington, D.C.
Ben Parr, now based in San Francisco, was among an estimated 70 innovators from around the country invited to the Aug. 27 Data/Jam Think Tank organized and hosted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The purpose of the meeting was to come up with ways to improve disaster response and recovery efforts through the use of technology, including new tools, products, services, programs and apps.
Parr said he was selected for the Think Tank because of his deep knowledge of tech companies and tools which could be useful to FEMA’s efforts. Though he represented DominateFund, the company which he co-founded, selection was more about the minds and brainpower than the companies present, he said.
