NSIN’s Defense Innovation Accelerator (DIA)

Launching in late June, the DIA is seeking entrepreneurs for the upcoming DIA cohort. The application can be found here: https://recruiting.fedtech.io/dia

This is a great opportunity for any students or alumni who are interested in pursuing entrepreneurship or founding a company. 

As part of the DIA program, teams of entrepreneurs will assess the commercialization potential of Defense technologies hand-in-hand with lab scientists and technologists, and explore forming startups around those technologies to solve the real-world problems of Defense and commercial customers.

Over approximately two months, teams will explore the commercial viability of a cutting-edge technology from a top-tier research and development lab within the DoD and potentially create a company through licensing the technology.

For 2020, the following themes have been prioritized for development and acceleration:

  • Cybersecurity and secure communications
  • Autonomous systems
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Virtual reality and computer vision
  • Sensors
  • Human performance
