Novus Capstone was formed in January 2017 to establish public-private partnerships to transition and commercialize emerging national security technologies and capabilities from government to private sector. Initiatives were designed to overcome the chronic “valley of death” challenges in diffusing innovative but often classified research and technologies.

Founder Keith Harlow brings over 35 years with federal executive branch, legislative branch, and private sector organizations in diverse operational, analytical, research and development (R&D), program management, and federal executive positions. Keith brings to Novus Capstone his demonstrated skills in executive management and leadership for a geographically diverse federal R&D enterprise providing exceptional direction, coordination, and integration of critical and complex national security technology development programs and support infrastructure.
