Learn how to expand your markets beyond the defense community. Receive expert advice specific to your company. Pitch competition winner will receive a prize up to $25,000!


Have you ever thought about expanding your business to sell to customers that are outside of Department of Defense? What would you do with up to $25,000 to capture new customers for your technology? Join us for an action packed afternoon where we will bring resources to help you grow your business in exciting new ways.

The goal of the workshop is to help you make more meaningful connections on your path to market by taking some of the technology funded by the various agencies in the Department of Defense to a global marketplace beyond the defense application. Up to ten companies will have the opportunity to present their current defense technology or product plan to the group. Each company will then be assigned a team of experts to help work on business diversification strategies for each company. The finale of the program will present those ideas to the panel of judges and one lucky company will be awarded up to $25,000 in funding to take their project to the next level.
