The Department of Defense (DoD) has come to understand the importance of synchronizing capital, innovation and national security. The new aim is to incentivizing innovation through competition – akin to the successful commercial tech VC/PE industries – and thus driving the private sector to offer the defense industries its best technical solutions at a best-value cost and price. This eco-system of public capital, private investors and high-growth defense tech companies is set to grow, with Defense Tech Investing becoming a larger part of the alternative investing industry.

This investor event showcases Defense Tech focused funds and companies to investors. The underlying tech includes next-era defense applications, including: UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems), UWAS (Underwater Autonomous Systems), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV), Drone and Counter-drone systems, Sensors and Surveillance, Renewable Energy solutions, Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printing, Composites, Medtech solutions, Augmented Reality, Robotics, Space tech, A.I. and Data Analytics, among others.

This event is live, in-person, where managers give presentations during lunch, followed by private meetings. The event concludes with a networking reception. Participants are given access to a dedicated online event portal, where the agenda, meetings, contact details, event binder and delegates are listed. The event is small and exclusive, with only around 30 participants in a controlled environment.
