Startups and Government: Unlocking $4B in Funding
Billions of dollars must be spent each year to support US innovation. These funds must not only help the US advance its R&D needs but also spur participation in our economy by women and socially/economically disadvantaged people, and ensure commercialization of these technologies. In short, these gov’t funds are to help innovators build profitable companies to help the economy. If they become household names like 23 & Me, Sonicare or Qualcomm, even better. Could that be you? Or your portfolio company (that could receive matching funds making investment go further)? We'll bring you close to the leaders of these programs so you can learn about funds coming from the SBA, Air Force, DOE, NASA and more, hear about success stories that might surprise you, and ask questions during our Q&A.
