The xTech Accelerator program is designed to help finalists of the US Army's xTechSearch prize competition be successful via education, mentorship, exposure, and community building.
The ultimate goal of the xTech Accelerator is to develop xTech winners as quickly as possible so that they can transition technologies to the warfighter, while preparing them for private commercialization in parallel.
xTech 4 Accelerator will kickoff in early April 2020. We are actively soliciting mentors, advisors, strategic partners, and investors.
