Encountering Innovation Week 2019

Thursday, September 26 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm • Organized By Kansas Small Business Development Center
12345 College Blvd, Overland Park, KS 66210


Education and Networking Lunches Encountering Innovation Week offers three days of educational classes presented by subject matter experts on topics relevant to technology commercialization. Those presenting pitches and poster boards, as well as interested members of the public, are all welcome to join us for these classes. Pitch Sessions - This is a collaborative discussion with DoD Tech Scouts from several Combatant Commands and other agencies. Your session may include introductions to Program Managers and Procurement Officers of various programs throughout the branches of the DoD or outside the DoD as appropriate. Funding opportunities may come as a result of a DoD Tech Scout Socialization Email of your tech innovation. Poster Board Parade of Technologies - Once you apply, consider yourself a participant of the Poster Board Parade of Technologies event. This is the single most important portion of the entire week, as we will be marketing not only to DoD Tech Scouts but also Prime Contractors, Manufacturers, Angel Investors, and SBIR Program Managers, the general public as well as other DoD agency personnel. Evening Networking - Connect with Tech Scouts, innovators, and resource partners over light refreshments. Open exclusively to those registered to pitch and poster board.
