Stories from the NNI – 15 Years of Nanotechnology Advances  

To celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the authorization of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office releases a special anniversary episode of the Stories from the NNI podcast series every Monday. In each of these episodes, an expert from academia, government, or industry shares his or her perspectives on key research and development advances in nanotechnology and how the NNI has changed the nanotechnology landscape.

On National Entrepreneurs Day last month, the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) began to build a community around nanotechnology entrepreneurship; for entrepreneurs, would-be entrepreneurs and other interested parties.

The intent of the network is to grow the nanotechnology entrepreneurship community through the sharing of best practices, mentorship and experiences. The first event was a podcast episode featuring Joe Sprengard, CEO of Veelo Technologies. That episode can be found here:
