What we’re about

Taking Technologies to Market helps people turn innovative ideas and research into profit by providing the information and connections needed to develop and create market-driven products and form sustainable business models around those products. Taking technology to market is complex. Understanding the market - and market opportunities - is critical, but challenging. Finding the right funding at the right time seems to be more art than science. Taking Technologies to Market can help.

Each of our events includes expert speakers, successful entrepreneurs, market leaders and others you want to network with and learn from to take your technology to market. The format of our MeetUps includes time for networking with speakers - and with each other - both before and after the program. 

Whether you’re an entrepreneur seeking new technologies to commercialize, a small business seeking to differentiate, a scientist performing cutting edge research, an engineer holding a patent, or are just curious about cutting-edge tech, Taking Technologies to Market is the place for you. Past MeetUp topics have included understanding how to fund product development through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, conducting comprehensive market analysis, product development strategies that work, strengthening your product offering with Department of Defense patents, and more – always with a focus on providing valuable information to launch successful products and run successful businesses.
