NanoBCA to Host Webinar: Leadership Style – Weds 1/9 2PM ET

Posted on January 9th, 2019 | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) and Water 2.0 are hosting a webinar series lead by Rob Brinkman, the Founder of Safe Harbour Retirement. His webinar on Block Chain was our highest attended online event in 2018. I have asked Rob to prepare a special series on the critical elements affecting business owners and entrepreneurs today. Rob was a managing executive at a large publicly traded company and has initiated several very prosperous start-ups. His successful endeavors prompted me to ask him to mentor us through the elements that he has implemented in his own firm.  This is the third in a series of four webinars; two in December and two in January.

15th Anniversary Celebration of the NNI Signing

Posted on January 9th, 2019 | No Comments »

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is NNI-signing-by-President-Bush-for-SF.jpg

Fifteen years ago on December 3rd, the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act authorizing the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) was signed into law by President George W. Bush. I spoke with Mark Modzelewski, Co-Founder of the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA), who said, “Sweet, fifteen years ago we were with President Bush in the Oval Office. Some days it seems like it was yesterday. Other days, well … I miss the early days of our Association (2001-2004). After all these years it is great to realize that we made a difference and the NNI continues on today.”

Dr. Lisa Friedersdorf, Director of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office(NNCO) commented on the NNI’s 15th Anniversary in the Fall Edition of their Quarterly Newsletter. Click here to read the article What’s Big in Small Science?
