Lauren Knausenberger

Director of Cyberspace Innovation, Air Force

Lauren Knausenberger is on a mission to speed adoption of emerging technologies, inspire intrapreneurs, and break down barriers to innovation within the DOD. One of her most recent initiatives was launching the Air Force Spark Tank. As the name suggests, it’s an effort like the TV show “Shark Tank,” but it’s meant to give funding and recognition to the service’s personnel for their innovative ideas. She says it’s been one of her favorite parts of her career. “It truly celebrates our innovation heroes in the Air Force,” she said. “I think that it will be a really wonderful tool for both inspiring innovation and enabling innovation going forward.”

Knausenberger loves being a part of the tech workforce. ”The technology space is where it’s at,” she said. “This is the space that is truly going to change the world, and I do believe that the world is going to be a very different place within the next five to 10 years.”
