Webinar Details:

On May 6, 2021, DIU hosted a webinar focused on sharing best practices for commercial technology companies interested in submitting a proposal (Solution Brief) in response to a DIU solicitation. 

What investors look for in a pitch deck is different from what DIU and its Department of Defense (DoD) partners look for in a Solution Brief. LtCol Michael "Rags" Seltzer (Program Manager, Autonomy Portfolio), Dan Nidess (Program Manager, AI and Advanced Energy & Materials Portfolios (contractor)), and Sarah Pearson (Commercial Engagement Executive, AI Portfolio (contractor)) provided a high level overview of our vendor selection checklist, proposal and pitch best practices, and DIU’s processes for prototyping and scaling commercial technology. Watch the webinar recording to learn how to showcase what your technology or product can do for defense customers.

Watch our recent explainer video or check out our past webinars and podcasts for more information about how DIU has created a new way for businesses to work with DoD on commercial terms and at commercial speeds.
