GDI Partners Introduces TRIAD (Technology Requirements Innovation Awareness Days) – A New Way to Connect with DOD Buyers & Decision Makers

Do you think you have a product or new technology that could solve a problem for the DOD and the U.S. Warfighter? Have you heard about the U.S. Combatant Command Science & Technology Scouts that are looking for your solution? Do you know that these Scouts report back to decision makers who have the power to write checks and sign contracts? If you met a Scout, would you know how to present your tech in their language and preferred format?

At GDI we know the Scouts and their network of decision makers. We know where to find the list of requirements that guide Scouts in their search. We understand how to effectively communicate the benefits of new tech or existing products to the Scouts. And, we’re excited to share our expertise with you through the TRIAD Collider.
