Founded in 1985 by Blake White as an outlet for his private consulting, academic research and publications, the Strategic Technology Institute (STI) has evolved, since 2010, into a boutique network of independent consultants that provides executive-level management advisory services focused on corporate strategies, facilitated by technology innovation and global change; and it is a non-partisan virtual ‘think tank’ that investigates the public policy issues raised by science and engineering.
