Launch Dayton partners launch new defense accelerator

October 13, 2020

Apply by Oct. 23 for the region’s newest Defense Accelerator, a nine-week virtual commercialization training program designed to move any Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I awardees towards a Phase II or new commercial market.

The accelerator will provide Zoom-based workshops to provide small businesses and entrepreneurs training in topics like customer discovery and business models. Personalized support and coaching will be offered along the way.

The program will run Feb. 1 to April 2, 2021. Apply here by Oct. 23. For more info, email [email protected].

All Dayton-area DoD Phase 1 awardees are encouraged to apply — it does’t matter if you received your award last week or three years ago.

The new program is facilitated by two Launch Dayton partners — it funded by a Wright State Applied Research Corporation grant through the U.S. DoD Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) and administered by The Entrepreneurs Center (TEC).
