In a world where a ride is just a tap away (or not), society must ask: How might state and federal policy limit future innovation as it relates to everything from drones to driverless cars? How can we avoid inhibiting innovation while still protecting public safety? How does the recent fight over ride-sharing regulation in Austin compare to what other cities have experienced? What challenges are entrepreneurs in Austin and around the country facing? Where should we go from here?

Lincoln Network, formerly known as Lincoln Labs, was born from the optimistic view that when technology and public policy meet, under the right conditions and with the right tools, both worlds win. Through hackathons, meetups and online engagement, we provide opportunities for the entrepreneurial community to come together and both collaborate on and learn about market-based, tech-powered solutions to our nation's biggest problems.
