Sharing success. In 2014, Jacobs saw a need for improvement and an opportunity to capitalize on emerging technology to implement IT solutions before challenges could become problems. To that end, he helped MITRE's customers by increasing understanding of their strategic requirements and creating new processes for engaging with them. He used crowdsourcing tools to triple the number of research ideas and increase MITRE's social media presence by 100 percent. Jacobs works with federally funded research and development centers and nonprofit organizations to help them achieve the same success.
