How We Work
NSIN Challenges hosts competitive prize competitions on a specific topic or technology vertical, allowing early to mid-stage companies to pitch solutions to potential U. S. Department of Defense mission partners and industry subject matter experts for evaluation.
Recognizing the timing considerations for DoD contracting, NSIN Challenges signal the need for specific innovation as it communicates desired solutions to potential, non-traditional problem solvers.
Utilizing the IdeaScale platform, NSIN Challenges engages innovators to develop solution concepts by leveraging the NSIN Network.
