The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) has just made a charitable donation to STEM Education. Please, join us!

Our education member, Omni Nano, needs to raise the last $10,000 to win the challenge grant (details below).

Omni Nano has been inspiring high school students to be the next generation of scientists and engineers. This ensures that America continues to be the world leader in innovation and technology.

If you care about STEM education and the future of America’s competitiveness, please donate to Omni Nano today (We just did).

P.S. About the Challenge Grant: Omni Nano now has a unique opportunity to expand their programs and impact more students. They received a Challenge Grant from a Family Charitable Trust. If they raise $25,000 by the end of February, this Trust will also donate $25,000 to Omni Nano (1:1 matching). These funds will allow 1,000 students to receive a textbook for their STEM/nanotechnology courses.Follow this link to read the Challenge Grant Letter:

2020 Nanotechnology Entrepreneurship Network Webinar Series
Insights from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)

Date: Wednesday, February 5, 2020
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

To register, please visit the following link:


        • Elizabeth Dougherty (USPTO)
        • Craig Morris (USPTO)


The Nanotechnology Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) brings new and seasoned entrepreneurs together with the people and resources available to support them. This emerging network provides a forum for sharing best practices for advancing nanotechnology commercialization and the lessons learned along the technology development pathway.

A key stop on the technology development pathway is protecting the underlying intellectual property. Entrepreneurs intending to commercialize an emerging technology, such as a nanomaterial or a nanomaterial-enabled product, need to be cognizant of pertinent intellectual property issues that will impact their business.

In this webinar we will welcome guests Elizabeth Dougherty, Eastern Regional Outreach Director for the USPTO, and Craig Morris, Managing Attorney for Trademark Educational Outreach for the USPTO. Our guests will discuss types of intellectual property, intellectual property strategies, the patent process, and issues related to trademarks.

Please use the login link sent with your registration confirmation email to attend the webinar, or login here.

Hope you will be able to participate.
