On this episode of the Startup of the Year Podcast, we hear an interview that our team did with Maxwell Briggs during our 2020 Summit.
Maxwell is the acting Program Executive for NASA's iTech Program, which focuses on companies with dual-use and spin-in technologies that are both viable in the commercial market and have potential NASA use cases. In the past, he managed NASA's SBIR portfolio for the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate where he was responsible for reducing barriers to entry for entrepreneurial companies looking to engage the program. He is also a recovering engineer who used to work on power generation systems for human exploration and science missions.
We also hear the “VC Minute” segment from Rich Maloy of Established Ventures who talks about “risk versus uncertainty.”
The 2021 Startup of the Year Application is open! The top 100 startups will come together for additional opportunities to connect, showcase, and potentially take home the title of Startup of the Year at our annual Summit.

Startup of the Year helps diverse, emerging startups, founding teams, and entrepreneurs push their company to the next level. We are a competition, a global community, and a resource. Startup of the Year is also a year-long program that searches the country for a geographically diverse set of startups from all backgrounds and pulls them together to compete for the title of Startup of the Year. The program includes a number of in-person and virtual events, including our annual South By Southwest startup pitch event and competition. All of which culminate at our annual Startup of the Year Summit, where the Startup of the Year winner is announced, along with an opportunity at a potential investment.
