About the series
October 5, 2016- MIT Media Lab: Women SBIR Networking and Awareness Day:
This event has been designed to supplement the 2016 New England Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Conference to deliver content and a networking opportunity for practitioners as well as a policy discussion to promote gender diversity in grant making. Attendees will hear from panelists who have moved technology out of the lab and into the market, discuss the importance of networking and mentoring in business and SBIR as an element of a company’s funding strategy, and hear a conversation of university administrators on the academy’s commitment to gender equality in science education and practice.
