Commercialization Academy Virtual Demo Day
Teams from the current AFRL Commercialization Academy cohort, who are building their startups around Department of Defense Intellectual Property (IP) from the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI) in Rome, New York, will pitch their startups in cyber security, big data, information systems, and UAS, to a panel of judges and compete to win $300,000 in prize seed funding!
