A NEW MODEL FOR PROBLEM-SOLVING
AAL introduced the Cohort Program in January 2020 and, based on initial success, integrated aspects of this approach into the SPARTN program. To date, 37 companies have participated in cohort-style programs with AAL to tackle a variety of complex challenges for the U.S. Army. Learn more about the Cohort Program and how it works now.
ABOUT THE COHORT PROGRAM
Cohorts are playing an increasing role in startup communities around the world. So we decided to put a twist on that concept for the Army.
Our Cohort Program is similar to an accelerator, similar to a hack-a-thon, similar to traditional acquisitions, but none of those things by itself. It brings together a group of companies that don't usually work with the DoD and focuses them on solving a specific Army problem. In exchange, participating companies receive non-dilutive funding and a chance to present their solution concepts directly to Army stakeholders and mission partners.
