STARTUPS AND ENTREPRENEURS
Uniting America under Diversity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Dual Use Ventures believes America's sustainable advantage is it's diversity. We are on a mission to unite the country under innovation and entrepreneurship.
Underserved communities and underrepresented entrepreneurs have talent but are at a disadvantage due to lack of networks, resources and funding opportunities.
We combine all of them under one roof.
There is a funding mechanism called the Small Business Innovation Research program. Think America's seed fund for Research and Development of products and technologies that our government can buy.
"SBIR funds the critical startup and development stages and it encourages the commercialization of the technology, product, or service, which, in turn, stimulates the U.S. economy. Since its enactment in 1982, the SBIR program has helped thousands of small businesses to compete for federal R&D awards. Their contributions have enhanced the nation's defense, protected our environment, advanced health care, and improved our ability to manage information and manipulate data." https://www.sbir.gov/about/about-sbir
You might have just had an aha! moment on how to fund your next raise or may already know about the SBIR process and wrangling it.
We provide acceleration as a service to innovative startups who have game changing technology or products that might have problem solving capabilities in the Defense industry. We then invest in the best of class companies we identify through that pipeline.
