Overview of the SINET Workshops and Showcase

Innovative solutions frequently come from new and small companies. Our goal is to provide global entrepreneurs an opportunity to increase their product awareness to a select audience of sophisticated investors, builders, buyers, researchers and investors. The guideline for companies to participate is an annual revenue of approximately fifteen (15) Million dollars or less. However, advanced products from more established companies, or from foreign countries, may also be considered if they meet high-priority security needs & requirements.

SINET Workshops and Showcase Objectives:

  • Increase awareness of innovative technologies to an audience of buyers, builders, researchers and investors in the Cybersecurity domain.
  • Identify and display sixteen innovative and potentially disruptive Cybersecurity technologies in front of an audience of representatives from the investment, commercial, civilian, defense and intelligence communities.
  • Help match private industry and the Federal Government's most pressing IT security needs and requirements with the companies who are building solutions in these areas.
  • Enhance collaboration between innovation centers such as Austin, Boston, DC Metro area, Illinois, New York, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Silicon Valley with the defense, industrial, intelligence and homeland security base in the Washington, DC community.

One-on-One Appointments Available:
SINET will once again host One-on-One meetings with Federal Government officials from NSA, DISA, DoD & US Cyber Command. In addition we will announce for the first time; One-on-One opportunities with representatives from the venture capital community.
