Sameeksha Desai is an associate professor at the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and Director of the Manufacturing Policy Initiative at Indiana University. Her work focuses on entrepreneurship, innovation, and economic development policy, and the implications for regional economic resilience if new businesses don’t start.
