We all know flexibility is the key to airpower (according to us Air Force folks), so despite having to cancel our in-person Spark Collider and Pitch Bowl events in Austin this week, we’re making them virtual! Brought to you out of Mission Control in Capital Factory and home of AFWERX Austin, we’ll bring you keynotes, breakouts, and other programming that’s intended to catalyze virtual “collisions” between the Air Force’s toughest problems and the resources, companies and people with potential solutions.
This event, hosted with our defense partners including Army Futures Command, NavalX, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Innovation Network, will consist of four parts. We have a general agenda and three more that will cover the Spark Collider, Pitch Bowl, and Strategic Financing (STRATFI) Showcase.
We will be using a prototyped chat bot to help connect Airmen with Small Business Innovation Research companies with solutions relevent to their use case in place of in-person connection activities. Government employees can text 202-900-5005 to access the bot.
Attendees will be able to tune in to the virtual event via the links to digital rooms below once they are finalized.
