"SOFWERX is an indispensable organization...it’s platform for putting industry and government users together in a well-managed fashion helped our company validate and hone our value proposition. The high-caliber event drew like-minded and complimentary solutions which made identifying suitable partners extremely effective. We would have spent months, if not years, to get the results this event brought in two days. And to top it off, the entire staff were friendly, knowledgeable and went way beyond to ensure our success. Well done!"

"The SOFWERX collaboration events are an excellent way to bring diverse groups together to spur innovation. Although they have not immediately led to additional business, we look forward to participating in future events to continue assisting the SOF community and developing new technologies and applications."

"SOFWERX has done a superb job of bridging the tech capabilites gap between the developer and the end-user, specifically the SOF Operator. This effort has been sorely needed and SOFWERX has met this requirement and serves as an example of ‘right’ looks like."

"Through collaboration at SOFWERX, I was able to meet people from government research labs and industry vendors with great technologies that we didn't have to develop. Those relationships are turning into teams and proposals."

"Great venue, and great support from the SOFWERX staff; there were plenty of folks involved or readily available to handle any situation, and that was just within our group. Not knowing how many other groups were present at this location, we really had the support we needed to pull off an excellent event."

"The openness of the SOFWERX platform produces an ecosystem, in which it is easy to create new connections and new ideas. My brain is humming from the ideas generated at SOFWERX. There’s no doubt that the multi-directional interactions of the Capability Collaboration Event (Gov to industry, industry to industry, and Gov to Gov) will improve the variety and quality of submissions to the RFI. This is not your father’s industry day!"

"From facilities to staff to the final agenda, SOFWERX provided a modern, professional environment for collaboration between Operators, Industry, Academia, and Government at the NGIA Industry Days event. Besides being an excellent networking opportunity, the NGIA initiative should prove to be a successful conduit for rapid solutions from industry to operators on the edge."

"The ability to support veterans in the community is easily approachable by small organizations, but the ability to support the warfighter is difficult. SOFWERX opens up this opportunity to small innovators and academics by providing events - like the Unity Developer Forum and Virtual Worlds - in the Tampa Bay region and without cost. This unique voice of innovation is lost in larger events having substantial cost to attend. Thank you for providing an opportunity to serve the warfighter community."

"SOFWERX has given us as a small entity, a platform where our solutions to corrosive atmospheres can be demonstrated on a wider scale. Thanks to the foresight in creating SOFWERX, I believe the exposure and fast-track structure of this program will open many enlightening and innovative products and solutions. Implementation of these creative solutions will save lives and money in our military’s future."

“The leadership team at SOFWERX have developed an important capability of innovation that is second to none. The OTA process was developed by the Kennedy Administration to help NASA innovate quickly to win the race to the moon. SOCOM and DOD needs the same type innovation... I am personally excited to collaborate with the leadership of SOCOM and SOFWERX. It is very clear that this process will produce better decision-making and collaboration to the Warfighter.”

"Just landed back in DFW after attending the SOFWERX Long Wave Infrared rapid prototyping event.

What a great experience to meet with some highly intelligible folks from inside and outside of the defense industry to crowd source solutions for the Warfighter. Diversity in thought and perspective truly drives innovation!

It’s not everyday (at least in my office) where you get to have engineers, subject matter experts, end users and customers all in the same room interacting with one another to solve a highly complex problem – at SOFWERX this is made possible daily.

Nothing that gets me pumped up like supporting the Warfighter!"

"I am founder and CEO of a technology company, Robodub which has built Morphing drone technology. SOFWERX has totally changed the fortune of our destiny.

I have to credit JJ for convincing me at her presentation in Seattle to submit White paper on our tech. SOFWERX encouraged our tech and gave us visibility to government agencies at a live demo in Florida. Several agencies are actively considering our drone platform for many applications. That is a huge win for a small company like us! SOFWERX is a great platform where tech companies now know the needs of SOF community and they can adapt their tech to give SOF guys an asymmetric edge. I would send further company updates as our contracts are signed."

"I found the organization of the event very creative. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of an illustrator embedded in each team who worked to create a real-time illustration of the ideas generated. I want one with me at all times."

"The SOFWERX RPE provided the perfect opportunity to meet with experts in the field and high level SOCOM customers and partners. The small number of attendees in a week-long format provided an incredible amount of access. I expect that some of these relationships will turn into joint projects and collaborations."

The event and coordination provided by the SOFWERX team fostered effective communication between government and industry to allow us to quickly see viable solutions to our technology challenge."

"As a commercial start up company it is not always easy to connect with the U.S. Government to get an assessment of dual use, commercial and military, capabilities. SOFWERX does a marvelous job of creating a clear, simple, and effective avenue for connecting innovative companies with Special Operation Forces' (SOF) needs. Also, the speed at which SOFWERX operates is breathtaking. SOF has always been a leader in defense acquisition, SOFWERX further strengthens SOF's position in moving at the speed of technology and emerging threats."

"Having the opportunity to meet with different USSOCOM entities and learn about their needs was invaluable. Through presenting at the Disrupter Event, we were able to continue the conversation with several different representatives in attendance and learn about how our technology could help their specific needs in different use cases. The SOFWERX Disrupter Event made it possible for our team to attend the SOFIC conference for the first time. It was an incredible experience and we will absolutely be returning."
