OCBO Alert- Small Business & Emerging Technologies Conference & Tech Fair
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
The FCC’s Office of Communications Business Opportunities (“OCBO”) will host a Small Business & Emerging Technologies Conference & Tech Fair on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm at FCC Headquarters, Commission Meeting Room, 445 12th Street, SW Washington, DC.
We will be highlighting small businesses, and particularly, minority and women-owned tech start-ups. We will be examining the challenges that tech start-ups face, as well as some specific issues that often preclude technical innovation in the minority business community. This conference and tech fair will be an all-day event with panel discussions on entity formation and incubation, early stage investment strategies, and a showcase of app designers, software/hardware manufacturers, and internet based business owners.
