The Foundation for American Science and Technology

FAST is a collection of people who have served both in government and the private sector, advancing American innovation, based on US science and technology.

We pursue policies that will facilitate US-based innovation, bolster America's strength in science and technology, and add high-value, high-wage jobs to the economy. 

Co-founded by the late Howard Schmidt — a former cyber adviser to US Presidents, and a former CISO for eBay who understood the role of small business in fueling economic growth –FAST is a 501(c)(3) designed to develop and execute multiple projects under its aegis.
