C_TEC (U.S. Chamber Technology Engagement Center) promotes the role of technology in our economy and advocates for rational policy solutions that drive economic growth, spur innovation, and create jobs.
C_TEC is working closely with Morning Consult to leverage their research, media, and data visualization tools to explore and distribute data on the most pressing technology issues. The C_TEC Intelligence platform powers this effort and will quickly become a leading information source on the economic and social impact of the tech sector.

Jobs, jobs, jobs. That’s been at the top of every American’s mind as the country has struggled to recover from the great recession. Across America, hard-working middle class families have sought to regain their economic footing and continue to climb the ladder of success.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) yesterday submitted comments to the Department of Commerce’s (DoC) National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) calling on the DoC to support the Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things (DIGIT) Act in Congress, a bill that would ensure that stakeholders are engaged with the government on issues surrounding the internet of things (IoT). The comments also warn the NTIA against creating new regulations that would inhibit IoT development.
NTIA can contribute to the future of IoT by coordinating government activity and insisting on data-driven decision making. As a convener of American innovators, C_TEC is ready to help the government promote the limitless potential of IoT.
