Our Mission

Collaboratively develop solutions designed to support First Responders’ capabilities in the Smart City environment, by providing technologies with market access, development capital, and aligning those technologies with larger tangential opportunities in broader industries.

We are actively looking for innovators developing technology directly aligned with the mission of First Responders and/or are in related industries (e.g. Smart Cities).
Innovator Collaboration
SCITI Labs brings together entrepreneurs, industry partners, technologists, investors, and public sector influencers working in concert to actively advance breakthrough solutions. Selected innovators will be eligible to receive funding for prototyping.
Prototype Testing
Solutions selected for the SCITI Labs program are evaluated on their ability meet the core technology requirements (provided by DHS), but also by their application and commercial viability in adjacent markets.
A final group of innovators will be selected to receive funding and work hands-on with first responders and technology experts to define and accelerate their path-to-market with government and corporate partners.
