9-HI is backed by key leaders in technology development

“Technology selection can be hard. I’m so impressed with Dave Mroczka and 9-HI™’s vision to optimize investments in the right technology areas that I immediately introduced him to our Microsoft for Startups team. I can’t wait to see what they deploy next.”

Anupam Gupta
CTO, Aerospace and Defense Microsoft Federal

“The development of 9-HI™ as presented to me as an AI-based, Product & Technology Collaboration Platform accessible by all levels of the DoD services and industry/academia represents a very powerful new capability to accellerate new technology development and/or deployment to our warfighters.”

Charlie Zisette
Executive Director
National Armaments Consortium

The technology scrapyard is littered with “coulda- beens”

90% of technology development ends in failure, leading to

$1.47T wasted on technology that never sees the light of day.

Despite all the advances in technology, decision-making has not evolved to meet the complex needs of today’s leaders.

Decision making before 9-HI™

Lacking context

Inherently biased

Limited knowledge share

Failure to identify red flags early on

Missing/de-prioritizing key issues

A different process for every investment and development effort

Decision making using 9-HI™

Retain Institutional Intelligence

Grounded in data and peer reviewed facts

A system of record with cross team documentation

SME guidance and AI support to avoid expensive mistakes

Human/AI guidance through the 9-HI scorecard to help make evidence-based decisions

A standard process for Technology Acquisition & Development

9-HI is the first Collaborative Decision Intelligence platform. The future of decision-making is here.

We combine the best traits of human intelligence and AI to help organizations make more informed decisions on which technologies to invest in (or not invest in).

20 years in the making

See how 9-HI has gone from spreadsheets to SaaS to make the methodology widely accessible.

Stuck with poor results.

Fed up with years of development projects only yeilding a 20% success rate.

 

Needed a better way

Began searching for new ways to increase development success rates.

 

9-Hi method created

Built an analog version of the 9-HI method using spreadsheets.

 

A 60% jump in success

Saw the success rates or development projects increase from 20% to 80%.

 

Building 9-Hi platform

Started building a product that others could deploy to see the same improvements.

 

 

More than $10M in funding

SBIR Phases I & II:
(AFWERX/JEMTP)
SBIR Phase III: $9.3M
OUSD, Defense Production Act)
