Pitch Day

The SLD 45 Contracting Squadron at Patrick Space Force Base (SFB) will host a Pitch Day event in order to obtain innovative solutions or potential new capabilities that fulfill requirements, close capability gaps, or provide potential technology advancements. 

Here is how it works:

Step 1 - Refer to for the Commercial Solutions Opening and more info. Companies must submit a white paper and a pitch deck for evaluation via email. A government evaluation team will evaluate the proposals and invite companies to a Virtual Pitch Day.

Step 2 - Selected companies, with an invite, will pitch their solutions to SLD 45 leadership. Companies whose solutions are selected will sign a contract and receive an initial payment at the Pitch Day event via a credit card. ​Immediately following the Pitch Day event, we will begin partnering with companies to deliver their solutions.
