Small Business Innovation Breakfast: Government Funding for Emerging Technologies

Join us July 19th at 9 a.m. at Venture Cafe Kendall for a morning dedicated to small businesses finding new opportunities to work on programs with federal agencies like the Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx) and the Small Business Administration (SBA) and hear from industry experts like Jameson & Co. CPAs LLC.

Learn about new programs to get your company funded in as little as 30 days as the government looks to attract companies in emerging technology fields like AI, cybersecurity, robotics, additive manufacturing, biologics and wearables.

The morning will start with coffee and bagels followed by opening remarks by our speakers. We will then begin a panel discussion to learn more about these programs and the technologies where the government wants to invest. Following the panel, we will invite three local startups to present about the technologies they are developing.

We will feature speakers from DIUx, the SBA and Jameson & Co. CPAs LLC. DIUx is an innovation cell stood up by the military to attract emerging technology companies with one of its first offices opening in Boston. The SBA has also created new programs to boost funding ceilings to small businesses working on R&D programs. Based in Massachusetts, Jameson & Co. is an accounting firm dedicated to working with small businesses that receive government grants and contracts.

Breakfast and plenty of networking opportunities with industry and government leaders will be provided at this event. This is a unique opportunity to learn about these exciting new programs that allow you to build your companies without losing equity. We look forward to seeing everyone soon.
