The Federal Innovator Podcast: Speaking the Love Language of the Decisionmaker

Episode 2

As government agencies adopt new technologies and approaches to modernize their mission, they’re increasingly relying on trusted partners in the public sector, academia, ventures, startups and industry to get them there.

But how exactly are government innovators finding these partners and creating relationships? What’s the lingua franca among partners, and how do you speak the love language of the decisionmaker?

That’s what we'll discuss on the second episode of The Federal Innovator, a podcast for and about the innovators taking on the biggest challenges in the federal government — and making change that is more human, simple and enduring.  

On this episode, Sandeep Patel, director of HHS’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority’s Division of Research, Ventures, and Innovation, or DRIVE, joins co-hosts Tim Irvine, managing director and  Accenture Federal Digital Studio lead, and Stephanie Wander, deputy director and senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.
