The Gordian Knot Center (GKC) for National Security Innovation trains and connects the next generation of national security innovators with the U.S. Government to solve the world's most intractable challenges—from great power competition and non-state actor threats to nontraditional transnational security dilemmas. We solve national security problems and deliver projects at the intersection of diplomacy, information, military, and the economy (DIME) and commercial technologies (AI, machine learning, autonomy, biotech, cyber, semiconductors, commercial access to space, et al.).
Our motto of penitus cogitare, cito agere, think deeply, act quickly, embraces our unique intersection of deep problem understanding and rapid solutions.
