SVIP Demo Week
The DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) hosted its inaugural virtual SVIP Demo Week on September 14–17, 2021.
SVIP Demo Week showcased 26 SVIP-funded startups and their projects supporting DHS components. Each showcase featured a panel of government and industry experts discussing cutting-edge industry trends and their use cases.
If you missed our series, you can view the recordings of the daily keynotes, demos, and panel discussions below and on the DHS SVIP website in the coming weeks.

SVIP was established in 2015 to tackle the hardest problems faced by DHS and the Homeland Security Enterprise. SVIP expands DHS S&T's reach to find new technologies that strengthen national security with the goal of reshaping how government, entrepreneurs, and industry work together to find cutting-edge solutions.
SVIP is designed to lower the barriers of entry for early stage startups to engage with DHS and incorporate DHS's requirements into their commercial products using DHS's accelerated contract vehicle. We offer U.S. and international start-ups up to $2M in nondilutive funding over 24 months to carry out prototype projects and possibly transition successful projects to production.
Feel free to email SVIP with your questions.
