Federal research labs are producing cutting-edge technologies for government use, but many of these inventions have broader potential applications. An iPhone, for example, has 12 technologies that were initially funded by the federal government. When commercialized, government technologies can be a catalyst for new businesses and expansion opportunities.

The District of Columbia sits at the center of the densest concentration of federally funded R&D in perhaps the entire world.However, many of these technologies are never commercialized because they lack the right entrepreneurial partner and supporting resources. This discussion will focus on ways to harness these untapped business opportunities by connecting inventors and DC entrepreneurs and equipping entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to build and scale tech transfer-born ventures.
