Speaker Bio:
Mark J. Lindquist is a United States Air Force veteran who dropped everything and bought a plane ticket to Poland three weeks after Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022.He figured that since it was clear that the United States of America was not going to send our soldiers to Ukraine, maybe someone with US Military training could help. During the past 20 months in Ukraine, Mark has partnered with trusted local Ukrainians all the way up to the Commander of the Ukrainian Air Force and the Minister of Defense to bring over $7million dollars of aid to the Ukrainian Army.

  • How the robust nature of the tech sector in Ukraine has supported the conditions on the battlefield
  • Observations on the command and control structure of the Ukrainian Army has evolved and progress yet to be made
  • Communicate the needs of the Ukrainian Army and how the tech sector in America can support those needs
