    The following message was originally sent by the Pentagon, from the scretary of the Air Force's Office.

    Colleagues,
     
    Attached is an open invitation for your constituents to participate in the
    Inaugural Air Force Pitch Day.  Pitch Days are new fast tracks for startups
    to work with the Air Force.  Modeled after commercial investment pitch
    competitions, our goal is to award up to $40 million on startups using
    one-day, one-page contracts.  These awards use convenient credit card
    payments - we want partnering with the Air Force to be easy and energizing!
