Catalytic Commercialization™ Process

Many government RDT&E contractors specialize in serving government offices and officials, which requires
a unique set of skills, infrastructure, and networks. However, these capabilities may not translate well to
civilian or commercially focused endeavors. In such cases, creating a startup or joint venture, or selling
an asset, may be a more viable option.

At Rushlight Ventures, we deploy our Catalytic Commercialization™ process to walk you through the progression. This structured approach identifies intellectual property suitable for monetization, characterizes relevant markets and customers, strategizes the best path forward, and puts the plan into action.

We work with your internal team to provide the focus needed to successfully launch a startup, joint venture, or asset sale. Whether it’s as simple as recommending an investment banker or as complex as designing a bespoke startup, RLV is here to assess your needs, provide recommendations, and do the heavy lifting.

Transition Support

Transitioning from RDT&E to Production

Transitioning from a research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) house to
routine production of products designed to be manufactured at scale can be challenging
for even the most capable RDT&E organizations.

It is like creating an internal startup—essentially, an internal business unit with a mission that requires different skills, culture, and mindset than your legacy business.

We understand the importance of establishing a strategy, managing liability, setting up new legal entities, establishing
and managing a supply chain, and creating a production mindset to ensure success.

RLV can assist you through this process to the point where you can take it forward and create new sources of value
for your organization.

Additionally, Rushlight Ventures can help identify and qualify appropriate suppliers, negotiate contracts,
and manage the supply chain necessary to produce products routinely.
