The Focus:
Do you have a dual-use technology that would be a perfect fit for national security? Do you know all of the requirements small businesses need to meet in order to work with the IC/DOD? These can include meeting investment requirements or avoiding foreign ownership control and influence while protecting your IP. The goal of this small business collider event is to share information to help small businesses be aware of and overcome these types of requirements in preparation for working with the federal government.
