About the event

In-person & online networking event for Lithuanian defense innovation & investment ecosystem.



New North Ventures was co-founded by Brett Davis (a government intelligence community officer) and Jeremy Hitchcock (a serial entrepreneur) to fuel the resurgence of American industry, innovation and resilience. They met through an effort to start a corporate venture platform and in a “never mind, we’ll do it ourselves” moment, decided to start an early-stage venture fund.

New North Ventures team is committed to collaborating with visionary companies and founders who are at the forefront of innovation, on a mission to strengthen our national security and economic resilience in an increasingly complex landscape of evolving threats. The Department of Defense has identified 14 pivotal technology domains that are essential for National Security, as outlined by the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (USD(R&E)).

These 14 critical technology areas are categorized into three distinct groups: Seed Areas of Emerging Opportunity, Effective Adoption Areas, and Defense-Specific Areas.
