What do GPS, lithium batteries and a vaccine for Zika Virus all have in common? Answer: they all were initially funded by the government and then spun out into commercial products!

Want to find the next big commercial breakthrough? Join Fed Tech (http://www.fed-tech.org/) this fall and be paired with a cutting edge technology to build a new business. We work to scout opportunities from the $140B/year federal research and development program and put them in the hands of entrepreneurs. The program has run since 2013 and had multiple spinouts.

You’ll be paired with a technology and then conduct 50 plus customer interviews to develop a go to market concept. Each week you pitch your findings to our teaching team and mentors, all consisting of real entrepreneurs. In person attendance in Washington, DC is required for the opening and closing sessions but all other sessions can be participated in remotely. Fed Tech has worked with entrepreneurs from across the country. In person sessions for the class meet in DC from mid September to late November.
