The Encountering Innovation initiative will help you identify innovative technology that fits your needs.

Are you a DoD or Corporate Tech Scout? An SBIR/STTR Program Manager? Venture capitalist/Investor? Regardless of your interest in innovative technology, this event will make it easier for you to find what you want.

We work with innovators to develop a package that includes a Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF), a quad chart, and an information paper. These documents follow a consistent, vetted format so that you can more quickly and more easily assess fit with your needs, your preferred technology readiness and commercialization level.

The Encountering Innovation initiative will make it easier for potential clients to find and connect with you.

We would like to connect innovators with resources. If you provide services with patents, research and development, prototyping, marketing, manufacturing, business development, and other areas of specific interest to innovators moving toward technology commercialization.

If you would like to become a sponsor, please contact Alan Badgley at or call (316) 290-9434 to learn how you can contribute to area technology commercialization and economic development.
