NASA Entrepreneurial Opportunity Program
NASA Entrepreneurial Opportunity Program, built by FedTech, was designed for NASA researchers to maximize the potential of their commercial inventions. We aimed to shrink the gap between the center where the technology is created and the end user. Researchers conducted discovery interviews, built a business plan, and generally focused on the broader ecosystem related to the transition of their technology.
Sponsored by the OUSD (R&E) Defense Laboratories Office, Elevate is a training series designed to grow the capability of DoD lab personnel to interact with industry, non-traditional partners and the venture community.
