FedTech Startup Studio
The FedTech Startup Studio was built on the notion that incredible technology is created in our federal labs, universities and corporations and most of it never has a chance to make it to customers, whether they are government or commercial. We also believe that entrepreneurship is a skill and experience that is desired but many individuals are constrained by their personal, professional or mental barriers.
The FedTech Startup Studio solves both of these problems by finding hidden technological gems in organizations across the US and pairing them with people who are employed full-time but would like to start a new venture and experience entrepreneurship in a low-risk environment.
Once a team is formed around cutting-edge technology, entrepreneurs will interview customers and develop a path to market. Over several weeks, entrepreneurs work with other successful entrepreneurs, partners, investors, mentors, and instructors every step of the way.
The program concludes with “Pitch Day,” where teams present the results of their hard work to the startup community of Washington, DC. Afterwards, teams are invited to continue on their journey and build their own venture.
