The neat thing about these companies is that many of them have the potential to be huge companies, and the SBIR / Department of Defense launch pad could just be the start for them. At this event, they let a few of the companies stand up and give a venture-capital style elevator pitch. It was fascinating to hear about each company. Here's a list of those who presented:
D&R Technical Solutions
Red Tail Hawk
It was great to see such a vibrant, high-tech crowd at this sold-out event. It certainly lends credibility to the notion that entrepreneurship is alive and well in the region - it's just under the radar.
