ThirdSpace Partners with USAF’s Through AFVentures / AFWERX to drive Airman Wellbeing
ThirdSpace Inc., a SAAS organizational culture platform, today announced a new partnership with the US Air Force through their AFWERX SBIR program. This partnership will explore the cultural and organizational needs of an Air Force unit such as the 115th Fighter Squadron in Madison, WI. The goal is to understand the greatest needs related to airmen wellbeing which may constellate around mental, emotional, spiritual and community factors. ThirdSpace is a malleable framework which may be adapted to solving core cultural problems for the Air Guard. The desire would be to roll out ThirdSpace across the entire guard to be the go to resource in order to amplify the effects of a trusting, safe, and positive culture.
“Being Selected for this AFWERX Contract is a privilege, and we hold a sense of deep responsibility and personal mission for playing a vital role in strengthening our Airmen,” says Scott Kohl, CEO at ThirdSpace. “This is just the beginning of our mutual journey, and it may lead to benefits for other National Guard units across the US. The goal with AFWERX is to deliver current solutions from industry faster than ever before.”
“Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research process in an attempt to speed up the experience, broaden the pool of potential applicants and decrease bureaucratic overhead. Beginning in SBIR 18.2, and now in 20.3, the Air Force has begun offering ‘Special’ SBIR topics that are faster, leaner and open to a broader range of innovations.”
The benefits of this new partnership include.
- An open door to innovation, agility, and resilience
- Enabling ThirdSpace to explore the technological and human potential
- Providing an incentive for broader commercialization across Dept of Defense
