DoD Startup DIUx Expands Footprint

September 19, 2016

On September 14, the Defense Innovation Unit Experimental, or DIUx, which already has offices in Silicon Valley and Boston, announced its expansion to Austin, Texas. DIUx, which has 22 projects in the pipeline totaling $65 million of forthcoming investment, is focused on bringing high-tech firms into the government contracting marketplace to augment DoD’s capabilities in areas such as autonomy, artificial intelligence, and machine learning and presents a unique contracting platform for such firms, though, as with other federal contracting opportunities, doing business with DIUx will subject tech firms to terms and conditions that differ in material ways from purely commercial agreements.
