TIL: In-Q Tel

Today I learnt about In-Q Tel, the venture capital arm of the CIA.

In their own words (pdf):

IQT’s initial mandate [was] to identify software innovations in specific areas such as natural language processing, geospatial analysis, and machine translation, among others, and adapt and deliver them for use by our government customers.


IQT’s mandate has expanded over the past ten years to also include physical and biological as well as security technologies, our focus on software and infrastructure endures.
