Fed Supernova

March 9 @ 10:00 - March 10 @ 15:00 CST

Fed Supernova is a virtual-first conference highlighting defense innovation in Texas.

This interactive experience will draw national attention and connect leading entrepreneurs, investors, thought leaders, corporations, and decision-makers from around the world.

Fed Supernova is the synergy of combining Capital Factory’s Texas Startup Manifesto with the massive defense industry momentum in Texas from Army Futures Command, AFWERX, Defense Innovation Unit, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Texas Military Department, and many others.

The event will culminate in the $100,000 Autonomous Drones & Mobility Investment Challenge focused on startups whose technologies leverage hardware and/or software solutions to enhance the future of autonomous systems and mobility. The challenge will include five technology startup finalists that will be judged by a panel of successful entrepreneurs, defense industry leaders, and venture capitalists. One will walk away with a $100,000 investment! Startups, submit your application today!
