Industry Leadership

Palantir is one of the most buzzy technology providers for the Defense Department because of its unabashed dedication to preserving the virtues of democracy and its ability to scale Silicon Valley ingenuity across the perilous Valley of Death. As president of Palantir for U.S. government business, Akash Jain is responsible for building and sustaining the company’s explosion of work in some of the most critical public sector missions, such as health care and defense, using data-driven artificial intelligence to deliver state-of-the-art outcomes.
