About the platform

UNUM is the one platform built to support innovators from across the Department of Defense, academic, and venture communities who want to connect and collaborate. Communities, Challenges, and Connections provide national security innovators with a common set of tools for discovering and leveraging the power of the networks.

Challenges create opportunities to bring together those at the front-line of national security challenges with non-traditional innovators.
