Foundry is a program of the National Security Innovation Network (NSIN), powered by FedTech. The program leverages breakthrough technology from top federal research and development labs to solve real-world problems for defense and commercial customers. Entrepreneurs and mentors are sourced from across the U.S., formed into teams, and matched with inventors of innovative technologies from federal labs. Over the intensive five-month program, teams go through two phases: customer discovery and early company formation. Successful teams form companies, license lab technologies, pursue funding opportunities, and develop innovative solutions to federal and private sector problems.
