What’s the length of the Program?

The program is divided into two 2 stages; Enablement Content and Showcase. The Enablement Content stage gives entrepreneurs the tools and resources their business needs to overcome the unique hurdles early-stage companies face when trying to commercialize technology in public safety. The Enablement Stage is complete when Participants have completed the required courses to reach optimization for public safety selling. There’s no set time limit for required completion of the Enablement Stage, however, we reserve the right to dismiss Participants no longer engaging or making progress. The Showcase Stage is on-going and available for all active Graduates of the Enablement Stage.

What’s the cost of the Program?

The Base Program is free for Entrepreneurs. Additional Showcase, PR and networking opportunities are available above the Base Program. Participant’s can pursue those opportunities by securing Participant Sponsors to cover any associated hard dollar costs.

What expenses must I be prepared to cover?

Travel and demo expenses related to showcase events will be the primary expenses associated with the Program. You will have full control over those expenses; you choose which events to attend and what presence you’d like to maintain at that event.  

Will travel be required?

No for Stage 1, Enablement. Yes for Stage 2, Showcase. Travel is only required in the Program to attend showcase events. All Enablement content is delivered remotely. However, showcase events are optional; you chose which events to attend.

What’s stage should my Company be in to be ideal for the Program?

Our Program is focused on optimizing the underlying Company that supports and commercializes cutting edge technology. However, the content is not focused on technology research or development. As such, in most cases, the Program is best suited for commercial ready, or near commercial ready technology. The bulk of the Program’s resources begin at the pilot stage, if you have a technology that’s ready for pilot, you’re ready for the Program. The resources extend beyond launch, beyond commercialization and in to scaling. If you’re already successfully selling in to the public safety market, but you’re looking to increase distribution, add sales channels and grow, you’re also ready for the Program. Of course, all Companies in between pilot and scaling are also great fits.

What if my Company has already been selling in tangential markets and we believe we have application in public safety, but we have not yet explored the market?

This scenario is largely what the Program was designed to solve for. Leading technology has long avoided the public safety sector, we’re believe our Program can help solve that problem. We’ve simplified the path to market, and have built-in several early stage indicator checks that Companies can pursue to better gauge their potential success in the market. Again, if you have a technology with application in public safety, the Program is a great fit and we’d welcome your application.
