Encountering Innovation


Encountering Innovation has quickly become one of the top US Pitch Events for Innovators/Inventors to present and showcase their technology to US Government Tech Scouts for special funding.  Tech Scouts from the Department of Defense, Service Labs, Academia, and most US government agencies prioritize attending this week-long event to listen to pitches, examine poster board displays, discuss government needs, and chat with innovators from 8+ states during lunches and evening networking events. 

Encountering Innovation Client Success Stories:  Past EI Events have provided innovators with valuable feedback and direction, with many innovations being selected for further socialization within government agencies and fast-track contracting for multiple firms in the millions of dollars.  Here are some of their stories.  

Funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
