Both members of Mass XV are former US Army Armor officers, with over 9 combined years of combat experience. We have lived with the implications of slow, monolithic acquisition and fielding processes, and seen Soldiers and leaders struggle to solve problems with the last war's technology. Upon transition, we mutually decided to dedicate our time and business to bring cutting edge solutions to Soldiers in need faster. We believe the best way to achieve this is through helping the companies that have the right products penetrate the government's requirements and acquisition processes. By connecting them with the right Army decision-makers and influencers, we can build footholds in military programs that dedicated sales, marketing and business development teams can successfully leverage to win business and provide better equipment to our military.
