Connecting the U.S. government innovation pipeline with entrepreneurship to support technology development for the national interest.

U.S. government agencies and labs fund massive amounts of R&D that may offer valuable technology capabilities, yet many of these are untapped or under-developed.

Consistent with IQT’s mission, IQT Emerge will work with government agencies to identify early-stage technologies with the highest potential for commercial success.

We will foster interactions and connections between the developers of that early-stage technology and entrepreneurs earlier in the innovation pipeline and provide commercialization guidance and support, with a goal of increasing the likelihood for commercial success in support of U.S. national security efforts.
