2021 Crane IP Defense Innovation Pitch Competition

This summer’s second-annual pitch competition provides the opportunity to win a cash prize for your innovative proposal to commercialize patented technologies and concepts developed at NSWC Crane–Indiana’s only federal research laboratory.

The intellectual property is being offered royalty-free at this time, in the hopes of spurring commercialization and business activity. Check out the available technologies here.

NSWC Crane’s Technology Transfer Office is available to meet with participants individually to assist with technology exploration and identifying patented technologies and concepts that meet their needs. Please contact cran_t2@navy.mil to learn more.

Participants can also receive individual coaching sessions through the resources of Elevate Ventures and ISBDC.

All participants in the pitch competition are asked to register below; the deadline for registration to participate is June 11. The pitch competition will be held on June 23.

The competition is free for participants. Entrants will receive a template to create a slide presentation for the competition. 

The development of this pitch competition is a collaborative effort of Elevate Ventures, Radius Indiana, NSWC Crane, Indiana Innovation Institute, and the Indiana Small Business Development Center.
