Boldline – P3 Cohort 1 thumbnail image

Join the first cohort to develop your public-private partnership.

Open UntilNov 29, 2017
information

WHAT IS BOLDLINE? Boldline is the U.S. Department of State’s new partnership accelerator aimed to support and scale innovative public-private partnerships (P3s). One of the first programs of its kind, Boldline supports social good public-private partnerships that address pressing global challenges and focuses on giving them tools to scale their missions. The main goal of Boldline is to build and deploy strategic connections and collaborations aimed at: a) strengthening the global partnership building ecosystem; b) promoting and facilitating connectivity between the private sector and governments; and c) fostering innovative partnership business models. Boldline will take the often dotted lines between government, private sector and civil society and create a bold line between the sectors through partnerships. THE ACCELERATOR The U.S. Department of State in close collaboration with industry leaders will organize a one-week partnership building accelerator program that will bring together selected stakeholders of public-private partnerships, including public institutions, corporations, innovation companies, entrepreneurship support organizations, and financial institutions to galvanize interest for the participating partnerships and to help build the framework for these partnerships in targeted countries. The program will identify timely P3ss that are in the early development stages of their partnerships or are ready to scale their operations and activities. Through a one week accelerator and ongoing support, Boldline will provide the individuals and institutions behind these partnerships with mentorship, access to resources, government relations, and global networks needed to scale their impact. The accelerator will take place in February 2018 in Washington, DC and participation in the program will be highly competitive. WHO WE ARE The U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Partnerships is a center of excellence for collaboration between the U.S. Department of State, the public and private sectors, and civil society. The Office aims to strengthen and deepen U.S. diplomacy and development around the world through partnerships that leverage the creativity, innovation, and core business resources of partners for greater impact. The Department recognizes that it takes more than governments to address many global issues and believes that partnerships with the private sector, civil society, philanthropy and other non-governmental organizations are necessary for our national security and diplomacy objectives.

Hidden Signals Challenge

Can you identify biothreats in real-time?

Open UntilDec 04, 2017
information

The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear – keeping America safe.  Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear: a safer, more secure America, which is resilient against terrorism and other potential threats. The vision of homeland security is to ensure a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards. Three key concepts form the foundation of our national homeland security strategy designed to achieve this vision: Security, Resilience, and Customs and Exchange. In turn, these key concepts drive broad areas of activity that the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) process defines as homeland security missions. These missions are enterprise-wide, and not limited to the Department of Homeland Security. These missions and their associated goals and objectives tell us in detail what it means to prevent, to protect, to respond, and to recover, as well as to build in security, to ensure resilience, and to facilitate customs and exchange.
