Visionary. Forward-leaning. Curious. Mission-focused.

These terms are the heart of IQT.

The Beginning

In-Q-Tel was founded in 1999 as the global technological evolution is underway… the internet is widely available, mobile applications are launching, and the digital revolution has arrived. The CIA and government agencies, once innovation leaders, recognized they were missing out on the cutting-edge, innovative, and impactful technologies coming out of Silicon Valley and beyond. Combining the security savvy of government with the can-do curiosity of Silicon Valley, In-Q-Tel is born.

20+ Years of Insight, Access, and Investing for Mission Impact

For more than 20 years the intelligence and national security communities have relied on IQT to anticipate its technology questions, needs, and achieve solutions. The entirety of IQT will always be looking ahead to power our partners ahead of the technology curve to ensure the national security of the U.S. and its allies.

Executive Team

IQT’s leadership team brings together revolutionary leaders with experience in business, investing, intelligence, defense, myriad tech domains, and government.
