The program that created the organization
First launched in 1999, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provided an intimate forum for attendees specific to vertical technology groups. SIGs are valuable for our corporate partners and their employees, entrepreneurs, the university ecosystem, and individuals seeking to gain specific subject matter knowledge. These in-person events are an opportunity to meet peers and industry leaders to advance mutual business interests.
EVONEXUS MIL SIG
Dual-use refers to technology that can be used for both commercial and military aims. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is one example of dual-use.
There is now a prioritization in the procurement of dual-use technology by the US government agencies. High-tech dual-use products present particular challenges for startups navigating well established regulated government ecosystems such as the DoD. Hear from an expert panel of startup founders about their journeys from innovating high-tech concepts to engaging the government. Participate in a lively discussion about how they raise both venture and grant based capital, build the right teams and ultimately market their breakthrough dual-use products.
