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.
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).
