Description

The MD5 National Security Technology Accelerator and BMNT Partners invite prospective Government and Corporate Sponsors to join a H4D® Problem Sponsors Course in San Diego, CA.


As we expand the H4D program, this course will provide an overview of the H4D methodology used in current and future H4D courses and teach sponsors how to achieve maximum results from the H4D university course.


For potential Government Problem Sponsors from across the DoD and Intelligence Community, the course provides insight into how to best prepare winning problems for what is a very competitive selection process amongst student teams. Further, the course teaches best practices on how to engage the H4D university class and maximize student expertise in solving tough problems.


For our Corporate & Industry Partners, this course provides an opportunity for your cohorts of H4D team advisors to become familiar with applying lean methodology to solving national security problems while also learning how to make the experience supporting H4D more valuable to your organization.


H4D® was developed by U.S. military combat veterans and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who will share how H4D is delivering solutions to directly support the warfighter and the mission of innovation in national security.


Now in its 4th year, H4D continues to produce impactful results:


Real-World Problems: Students work on real-world national security problems and engage directly with the national security leaders responsible for them. To date, nearly 200 Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) problems have been addressed in H4D courses.


Real-World Solutions: Student teams deliver real solutions that are being implemented by the U.S. government — all while moving at the speed of a startup. Six student teams have received funding from the DoD or venture capital to continue work on their respective DoD / IC problems.


Building the Next Generation of National Security Leaders: H4D is building 21st Century national security leaders. Hundreds of students from across the nation have been introduced to national service and have helped solve the challenging problems facing the DoD and the IC. More than half of those students plan to continue working on their problems following the course.
