Join us for a day of learning & networking, designed to help founders connect their solutions to local, state and federal government needs.
On July 28th, we will be hosting Defense Academy at Capital Factory Headquarters in downtown Austin. Defense Academy is designed to help founders with compelling dual-use technical solutions connect to local, state and federal government needs. Come to understand best practices for getting started, overcoming barriers to entry, and to learn which immediate opportunities are right for you. This half-day long event will be instrumental in kicking off your plan for pursuing state and federal business opportunities.
Capital Factory portfolio companies have received over 200 million dollars in government grants and contracts since 2019. Defense Academy will teach you how to pursue these opportunities. Experts in the field will introduce you to these contract or grant opportunities to include but not limited to Small Business Innovation Research Grants, Small Business Technology Transfer Grants, and Other Transaction Authority contracts. Come learn where these opportunities are located and the best practices for engaging with all the government stakeholders involved. There are a variety of government programs available you don’t want to miss to help you gain traction for your business.
Following this Defense Academy, please join us for a Networking Happy Hour from 4:30 – 6:00!
If you’re looking for more opportunities to engage with government customers, be sure to keep an eye out to register for the 2022 Fed Supernova occurring September 27th – 29th in Austin, Texas.
