The 401 Tech Bridge Tech Scouting program is a civilian-driven, non-government interface between the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) and its Tech Bridge network, and 401 Tech Bridge’s nation-wide networks of innovators, entrepreneurs, startups, and tech resources.

Our expertise in curating, navigating, and connecting these diverse networks is the foundation of what makes the Tech Scouting program so successful.
