As we navigate the global pandemic of COVID19, the Catalyst Accelerator is thankful for the efforts of alumni companies and others that are working toward solutions. In anticipation of life after COVID19, we have considered how we may bring our community together again, boost the economy, and focus on both the US Warfighter’s and space start-up/small business’s needs. We hope this Tech Collision event will be the catalyst for community cohesion and focus once again. We are living in uncertain times, however, and with that in mind, we will alter and flex all events accordingly. Our team wishes you only health and prosperity through this time, and we look forward to the continuing connections when it is safe to do so.

The Air Force Research Laboratory/Space Vehicles Directorate (AFRL/RV)-sponsored Catalyst Accelerator will host a 3-day pitch event where 32 – 40 startups and small businesses will have the opportunity to present innovative, dual-use, space technologies.  Companies will pitch twice—once to a room of Government tech scouts and once to a room of Industry tech scouts. The final day will include technology demonstrations facilitated by Tech Warrior Ops ( and a poster board session open to the public. When participant companies are not pitching, they will have the opportunity to attend relevant training workshops put on by the Catalyst Accelerator’s subject matter experts.
