Hacking 4 Defense Demo Day
Thursday, April 18, 2019
5:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium
Join us on demo day to hear from seven startups tackling real national security challenges-and disrupting the $350B government market. In Duke's first Hacking 4 Defense course, teams of interdisciplinary students from across Duke's Med, Law, Fuqua, Pratt, Sanford, and Trinity programs built startups to solve tough national security problems facing NC-based units. Teams interviewed hundreds of military users, built and evolved dozens of MVPs and prototypes, and explored both selling directly to the military and expanding to commercial applications. On demo day, an hour-long reception will be followed by pitches for collaboration software, biometric analysis, telemedicine solutions, social media analysis tools, and more. You'll see Duke's interdisciplinary and service offerings at their best-and gain exposure to early-stage ventures seeking capital. Admission is free, but seats are limited.
