SAN FRANCISCO, California—October 30, 2014—T4A.org today announced that they will host former U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Jason Grumet, Founder & President of the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC), for a TechTable on November 11, 2014. Mrs. Snowe is a Senior Fellow and Director at BPC. The topic of the TechTable will be bipartisanship, and it will be held at the offices of Electronic Arts in Redwood City, California.
“Mrs. Snowe is famous for her ability to compromise, we hope to discuss constructive partnership and how to get government to work again,” said Autumn Sample, Executive Director of T4A.org. “And we think that Jason [Grumet] will be a wonderful addition to the conversation. His new book[, City of Rivals,] offers a guide for governing a particularly polarized nation.”
T4A.org is a recognized 501(c)(3) organization, which is creating a network of entrepreneurs, citizens, and public officials who are committed to redefining the relationship between the public and private sectors. At its TechTables, T4A.org brings together its Board members with a “Convening Guest” from the public sector (e.g. member of Congress, U.S. Senator, governor, mayor, thought leader, etc.). It is an educational experience for both sides as the private sector learns about the specific challenges the public sector faces, while the public sector is provided a flow of innovative ideas and solutions from entrepreneurial leaders. Each TechTable ends with a discussion of potential areas of continued partnership and collaboration between our Board and the Convening Guest. T4A.org believes that as it develops world-class public/private partnerships, it will help spur creative and collaborative solutions to benefit all Americans.
