About Fed Tech Fall '18 Cohort
What do GPS, millimeter wave technology and baby formula all have in common? All were started with federal investment and then transferred to commercial markets. Will you leverage existing federally funded technologies to build the next big thing? We can help.
Fed Tech cohorts pair highly qualified entrepreneur candidates with cutting-edge inventions from the US federal lab system to conduct customer discovery and build business models around emerging technologies. Our program leverages lean startup techniques while also focusing on the unique aspects of turning a federally funded technology into a startup.
We work with your team to identify promising technologies and then help you validate markets and, when appropriate, pursue licensing agreements and other collaborative tools with our federal partners.
No fees or equity is required as we are funded by external partners ,but admission is extremely competitive.
Our next cohort will run from mid-September to late November, 2018. Participants will be required to make two trips to Washington, DC (cohort opening and closing) but the rest of the experience can be completed virtually.
We don't require our entrepreneurs to have technical backgrounds. Individuals or teams can apply.
