2021 SBA Innovation Ecosystem Summit

Make plans to join the Small Business Administration (SBA) at its inaugural Innovation Ecosystem Summit from November 15 to 17, 2021.

Join your colleagues and innovators to learn about:

* start-ups and small businesses, particularly those that are trying to build out and commercialize their technologies — any of whom could be a future partner for your lab.

* the new and thriving entrepreneurial support organizations (ESOs) working to help those potential partners succeed by connecting them with federal labs and agencies.

The inaugural Summit is curated to connect ESOs from around the country to leverage one another and build inclusive innovation ecosystems.

The three-day event includes is packed with exciting sessions on a variety of entrepreneurial topics, such as public and private funding, inclusive entrepreneurship, and more! On Tuesday November 16 at 3:15 EST, FLC Executive Director Paul Zielinski will lead a discussion on "Connecting with the Federal Lab Community."

Don't miss the first Innovation Ecosystem Summit, taking place virtually Nov 15-17, allowing innovation communities throughout the country to join and participate from afar. This promises to be a great gathering of thought leaders in this space – we hope to see you there!
