Event will be held July 30, 2019 at the Silicon Slopes meeting in Farmington, Utah.
I am so delighted to be appearing on a panel, “A Tech Policy Discussion” with U.S. Congressman, Chris Stewart that will be moderated by Troy Keller of international law firm Dorsey & Whitney. Topics to be covered include privacy law developments, growing your business with federal R&D grants, SBIR awards and government appropriations and Utah’s role in DefenseTech.
Chris Stewart is the Congressman from Utah’s Second Congressional District. Congressman Stewart’s key roles on the House Appropriations Committee and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence put him in a unique position to represent Utah’s burgeoning technology industries. He is also a No. 1 New York Times best-selling and national award-winning author, world-record-setting Air Force pilot, and the former owner/CEO of a small business.
As part of her leadership of Enclavix, Nicole Toomey Davis is the co-creator of VentureWrench Startup Community and raised over $1.2 million in funding from the National Science Foundation SBIR program for the VentureWrench Library, an AI-powered, free online library of curated startup resources to help entrepreneurs get quickly to success. Ms. Davis is a serial entrepreneur and served as an SBIR reviewer for many years.
The panel will be moderated by Troy Keller of Dorsey & Whitney. He represents businesses in their most strategic initiatives and on their most challenging issues with twenty years of experience in government relations and corporate law.
The VentureWrench team of serial entrepreneurs at Enclavix launched the VentureWrench Startup Community to help accelerate innovation and entrepreneurship, including coaching content to help entrepreneurs bring capital into their businesses. As successful recipients of SBIR funding, the VentureWrench Community offers a free guide, 40 Ways to Improve your SBIR Proposal™ which provides tips from the perspective of an experienced reviewer to help proposing teams avoid unnecessary mistakes and improve their SBIR proposals. The team also offers an online course “Improve Your SBIR Proposal – Insights From The Review Process“.
