NineTwelve (NT) locates innovators in secure and certified demonstration labs, called CoLabs. NTs unique CoLab platform accelerates the design and implementation of emergent solutions. Each facility houses state-of-the-art technology compliant with cybersecurity standards, aligned with the CMMC levels and best practices. The NT CoLabs are sponsored by industry and federal funders as part of a network across 5G, Manufacturing, Microelectronics, Unconventional Energy, Hypersonics and other interrelated strategic technologies - each reinforcing the other. NT layers this with: (1) Federal, state, and private funding; (2) IP-protected teaming arrangements with PR and branding support; and (3) Project management services. Together these services comprise the NT Acceleration Process that directly solves innovators’ problems and de-risks their time, money, facilities and capabilities, unlike consortium managers and business consultants who limit their approach.
