About the Lecture

Mr. Dave Horvath brings his background to IWP in business and the military to discuss private investment as it relates to U.S. national security.

In this lecture, he will discuss the importance of American private capital to fill gaps left by traditional government efforts and how private investment fills that gap. He will then discuss private investment and finance as a post-government career.
