Jay Harrison is a Defense industry entrepreneur and change agent. During his 10-year career as a uniformed and civilian employee of the Department of Defense, he achieved the distinction of being awarded an unprecedented three consecutive Army Greatest Invention awards for his contributions to technology innovation in the public sector.
In 2006, Jay teamed up with U.S. Army combat leader Major General Buford C. Blount, USA (Ret.), to create a new kind of Defense technology company optimized for the emerging realities of the global security environment. From this initial vision, Mav6, LLC – a company that employs design-based principles and open source innovation to solve the “wicked” problems in Defense and national security – was born. So far so good.
