The Air Force will be investing $40 million in contracts over the two days.
“It will be March 6 and 7 and it will be the first pitch day with the United States Air Force,” Wilson said last week during the Defense One Summit in Washington. “We will be announcing, on LinkedIn and websites everywhere, some of our toughest problems. They will be in software, intelligence, special operations, and then we will have an open category for good ideas.”
They are looking for five page papers from small businesses. If the service likes the idea, the company will be invited to pitch day.
Organizations within the Air Force volunteering for help from small business include Program Executive Office Digital, Air Force Business Enterprise Systems and Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence and Networks.
“If we like your idea, you can walk out that day with a one page contract and a swipe of a government credit card for your first down payment as a contractor for the United States Air Force,” Wilson said. “We want to get small innovative companies able to do work with the United States Air Force, and we’re willing to change the way we do business in order to do it.”
