Innovative solutions targeted to customer challenges
Milcord was founded in 2003 to apply emerging information technology solutions to our national security problems in the post 9-11 era. Having managed hundreds of R&D projects, raised more than $50M equity capital, and lead M&A and IPO transactions, Milcord management has operational management experience built over an exceptional track record of growing information technology startups. Dr. Alper Caglayan, President, has co-founded four companies including Peoplestreet, a venture backed startup; Open Sesame, a government R&D technology spin-off now part of Adobe; Bowne Internet Solutions, a 250 person Internet rollup now part of Lionbridge; and Charles River Analytics, a government contract R&D firm.
Instead of building a technical solution first and then searching for a market for it, Milcord employs a unique customer benefits and superior value driven approach to innovation. Using an open innovation approach that leverages the complementary experience of our team and partners to reduce project risk and accelerate the research to the commercialization phase, we employ a scrum software project management and development methodology based on delivery of software in short sprint cycles on open source software platforms. Our agile development process ensures that the research resources focus on problems maximizing customer benefits while the development resources produce maximal customer value under budget and time constraints.
