Each company was asked to make a pitch where they presented their San Diego story, their defense and commercial successes, and potential long-term growth and strategy for utilizing the grand prize. Each company also had a booth where they could display technologies, provide takeaway information, and answer questions from voters who would decide the winner of the grand prize.

Fuse congratulates Planck Aerosystems for winning this year’s grand prize. We also would like to thank all involved for selecting Fuse to share with the public what we do and our successes thus far. We are proud to be part of this great San Diego community of small businesses delivering innovative solutions to our Department of Defense and commercial customers.
