Pitch Day


FY19.2 November 2019 – Information | Registration

Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Pitch Day is modeled after the inaugural Air Force Pitch Day in March 2019 as well as commercial investment pitch competitions that will focus on awarding on-the-spot, Phase II SBIR contracts to companies based on streamlined evaluation of proposals and in-person presentations. This event will be held November 13-14, 2019 in Dayton, OH, and will showcase a simple and repeatable method to harness commercial technologies to support major program and mission area needs.

While the morning of November 13 is limited to private invitation-only pitches, the afternoon of November 13 and all day November 14 is an open opportunity for all to make faster and smarter strategies in technology investments, partner with small businesses, and see a showcase of new technology solutions and concepts!
