Application Deadline Extended for Next AFRL Commercialization Academy Cohort

Deadline extended for Commercialization Academy application

 

ROME, NY — The deadline to enter the next cohort of the AFRL Commercialization Academy, a national leader for facilitating the transfer of military technologies into the commercial marketplace, has been extended to Monday, November 12, 2018.

The AFRL Commercialization Academy is looking for startups in cyber security, big data, information systems, and UAS to apply to the cohort, that could lead to a $200,000 in prize seed funding, from IDEA NY.

Startup teams will enter a Commercialization Academy cohort, and then compete at a Demo Day for $300,000 in prize seed funding, with $200,000 going to the overall winner and $100,000 going to the runner-up.

The Commercialization Academy is a Griffiss Institute entrepreneurial education program sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI). The Academy pairs high-caliber founders with high-potential AFRL technologies with the goals of developing entrepreneurial leaders and launching new technology ventures.

The Innovation & Development Entrepreneurial Accelerator, known as IDEA NY Mohawk Valley, is a 12-month business accelerator competition program that will incentivize promising entrepreneurs to create and grow viable commercial businesses in the Mohawk Valley, by requiring that the company’s primary office be located in the Mohawk Valley region (Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Oneida, Otsego, and Schoharie counties).

There is no application for the IDEA NY program. The participation requirement for IDEA NY is that you must be accepted into, and successfully complete, the AFRL Commercialization Academy in order to participate in IDEA NY.
