Homeland Agency Holds Line On Tech Spending
from the no-windfall-here dept
Ever since September 11th there have been all these stories about how the new focus on security would be an opportunity for tech companies to cash in (which they desperately needed thanks to the downturn). However, reality hasn’t panned out that way. Now, the Washington Post is saying that the official creation of the Homeland Security Department isn’t likely to create much new opportunity for tech startups. It may open up opportunity for big established government contractors, but that’s about it. So, startups with business plans around this area might want to rethink their plans.
