In the long term, I am interested in working for a large company, like a honeywell or a GE, in their corporate strategy/M&A (diff companies might call this dept diff things). I would like to be finding new technology start-ups and new small companies or even just engineers who have developed amazing new technology and inventions particularly in the Security and Public Safety Technology fields. (I currently work for a security firm doing business development)
I want to be able to throw the resources of a large firm behind these "little guys" and help bring their amazing innovations to market. Getting their ideas out there in the market is more important to me than whether they develop into their own company, or their technology gets enveloped into the product line of the larger firm.
I could also see how, after developing some expertise in this area, that this would be valuable to VC firms in this sector.
In the short term, in order to accomplish this, I think the best thing for me to do would be some type of tech strategy consulting. I know diff consulting firms have different areas of expertise, but that's all I can really think of that would lead me to my long term goal.
