Full Summary: Connecting innovative minority business enterprises with companies and federal agencies looking for technology solutions.

The Atlanta MBDA Advanced Manufacturing Center (located at GT) has recently partnered with the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) to contract minority business enterprises (MBEs) through our business matchmaking event, NEXTTECH. The AFRL has two funded initiatives and have asked our help in finding MBEs that can help solve these problems.

#1 Accelerated Learning through Advanced Neural Interfaces

#2 Supporting a Sustainable Training Ecosystem

Read more about these two challenges and what the AFRL is looking for, at http://nexttechpitch.com/challenges/.

If your company can address the challenges listed above, we’d like to invite you to participate in our online matchmaking session taking place January 26, 2021. There is no charge to attend; however, registration is required. Companies like yours will listen in while a representative from the AFRL explains the challenges above and describes the technologies they are seeking. You will be able to ask questions about the projects. If you think you can address the needs of the AFRL, you can ask for a one-on-one meeting with the buyer.

The Atlanta MBDA Advanced Manufacturing Center is a non-profit center funded by the Department of Commerce, committed to strategically connecting MBEs with innovative opportunities and global partnerships. Our goal is to scale and strengthen minority businesses while creating jobs in the community.
