Today, on National Entrepreneur’s Day, we are pleased to launch a new community of interest to support entrepreneurs interested in commercializing nanotechnologies. The Nanotechnology Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) brings new and seasoned entrepreneurs together with the people and resources available to support them. This emerging network will create a forum for sharing best practices for advancing nanotechnology commercialization and the lessons learned along the technology development pathway. Activities are likely to include a monthly podcast series, webinars, workshops, and town hall discussions.  

To kick things off, the inaugural podcast in this series features a conversation between NNCO Director Lisa Friedersdorf and Joe Sprengard, CEO and Founder of Veelo Technologies. Joe talks about his journey as an entrepreneur and shares the advice he received when he was getting started.  Check back here for more information, and contact nen@nnco.nano.gov if you would like to join the conversation!

 

If you would like to learn more about nanotechnology, go to nano.gov or email us at info@nnco.nano.gov.
