Are you an inventor, entrepreneur, product developer, angel investor, scientist, engineer or post-doc in search of your future? Is your company looking for technology solutions to improve your products? Spend the day at the NIST Boulder Lab learning about new innovations and the resources available to help build businesses around them.

This event brings together innovative technologies, licensable inventions, research and engineering facilities, small business support resources at the Federal and state levels, and sources of funding—all under one roof, and all available for networking. This showcase is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Colorado Manufacturers’ Edge (Manufacturing Extension Partnership) and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade.

The format of the showcase will include opening remarks by Congressman Jared Polis, brief morning presentations of NIST and NOAA research capabilities and commercially-viable inventions. Speakers will be available following their presentations as their time permits for networking with interested attendees to explore licensing and collaboration opportunities—no appointments necessary. For those identifying collaboration opportunities, NIST’s and NOAA’s CRADA and licensing experts will be available to advise and demystify the process of collaborating with Federal agencies. Over lunch and into the afternoon, showcase sponsors will introduce the wide variety of resources available to support small and start-up businesses in the greater Denver-Boulder area and will also be available for ad hoc networking and consultation.

Start-ups as well as small and medium sized firms will:
  • Get clarity on rights to intellectual property that arises under government collaborations.
  • Gain insight on how interdisciplinary science and engineering can create new innovations.
  • Learn how local resources can connect you with the business, financing and manufacturing support you need to grow your business.

Security Instructions:  If you are not registered, you will not be allowed on site. Registered attendees will receive security and campus instructions prior to the workshop.
