Under Fire will welcome the Top 20 companies driving response innovations to the World’s largest emergency response training facilities for a good old fashion Innovation Showdown for the chance to win cash prizes!
Under Fire will bring all 20 finalists together in College Station, Texas on March 7th, 2019 for a Quick Fire Pitch (6 minutes) to our panel of judges. Only 10 companies will be invited to demonstrate their technology on Day 2. Under Fire will use a progressive prize pool, the 10 companies that do not make it through to Day 2 will receive cash prizes and coaching on from Responder SMEs, response innovation partners, business advisors, and angel investors.
As part of Under Fire’s application process, each company will be asked how they would demonstrate their technologies in 30 minutes if they had access to TEEX facilities including Brayton Firefield, Disaster City®, and RELLIS? The 10 companies that advance to Day 2 will then be given this opportunity to showcase their capabilities and features. They will be given 30 minutes to demonstrate their technology for a suite of judges in order to win the top cash prizes.
