at the FLC National Meeting
INNOVATE, in partnership with The Defense Innovation Initiative – Experimental (DIUx) hosted a special pitch session and reception during Industry Day at the Federal Laboratory Consortium National Meeting which took place April 26-28, 2016 at the Drake Hotel in Downtown Chicago/
Industry Days feature a panel of investors who are familiar with early stage technologies and make connections with key industry partners and federal lab representatives.
The DIUx positions the Department of Defense to be more open to the infusion of non-traditional technical ideas and talent. The initiative is designed to create a hub for increased communication with, knowledge of, and access to innovating, high-tech start-up companies and entrepreneurs and their leading edge technologies. The mission of DIUx is to:
- Strengthen existing relationships and build new ones
- Scout for breakthrough and emerging technologies
- Serve as a local point of presence for the Department
About FLC National Meeting
2016's theme, From Discovery to Commercialization, proved that technology transfer continues to be the key element of our nation's new tech initiative. We hope the training and networking opportunities presented at the meeting help catalyze the building of interagency and industry partnerships that will advance our federal technologies from the lab to the marketplace.
