Open the Door to Innovation: Learn How Federal Labs Can Benefit Your Business

FedTech presents:

"Open the Door to Innovation: Learn How Federal Labs Can Benefit Your Business"

About the Event

“Open the Door to Innovation” is the first event of a networking and exploration series to foster regional collaborations between the national labs, industry, entrepreneurs, and investors.

This event is designed for businesses and industry leaders. Learn how working with federal labs can benefit your business. LINC is a resource where the private sector can engage researchers and technology transfer professionals - it is a front door to the four Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratories in the San Francisco Bay Area (SLAC National Accelerator, Lawrence Berkeley, Sandia, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories).

At this event, you’ll:
• Have unprecedented access to officials from 4 national labs and be able to ask the panel your questions directly
• Hear from a CEO who successfully leveraged a national lab partnership to grow their business
• See “reverse pitches” from laboratory officials, showcasing technology and facilities, focusing on quantum and cleantech
• Discover partnership mechanisms and resources
