About FedTech

FedTech was born in 2015 after participating in the National Science Foundation's Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program when we saw an opportunity to commercialize the USD150B/year in federally-funded R&D. Many inventions we use today were created as part of a federally-funded R&D project including what we know today as SIRI, Google Maps, GPS, the internet, baby formula, lithium-ion batteries, smartphone cameras, and countless more. Today, we are a unique private venture firm commercializing tech across DoD, NASA, DoE, universities and other national labs, matching deep tech with entrepreneurs.
