About DIA

The NSIN Defense Innovation Accelerator (DIA) matches breakthrough Department of Defense (DoD) lab technology with teams of entrepreneurs to solve the real-world problems of DoD and commercial customers. Entrepreneurs work with DoD lab inventors, mentors, subject matter experts, and world class instructors to assess the market viability and the potential to commercialize DoD lab technologies.

DIA is a 4 month cohort-based program executed in two phases: customer discovery and early company formation. Successful teams have gone on to form companies, license the technology from the labs, and pursue various funding opportunities.

Phase I will run from May - June 2021 and Phase II will run from July - September 2021. DIA is currently accepting applications from technical and non-technical applicants.
