How to Leverage Military Non-Dilutive Funding for your Product Development Plan

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM, Tuesday, June 9, 2020 ・ Room 2
Small businesses are constantly on the lookout for funding opportunities to meet their development needs, and though many look at the federal government as a potential source, often the DoD is ignored due to lack of knowledge and fear of its bureaucratic procedures. The DoD funds, through outsourced research to businesses and universities, over a $1 billion dollars a year in areas relevant to battlefield medicine, but most often these same products have strong civilian applications as well. Be it infectious diseases, pre-hospital trauma products, physiological performance enhancements, or mental health restoration, the military has a rich tradition of partnering with outside entities to meet their wartime clinical needs from early laboratory based research to late stage clinical trial development. This session will showcase the methodology changes that the military has recently implemented to encourage greater outside partnering from both a performance and funding standpoint.
