Small businesses are invited to a workshop hosted by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego's Mission Valley. The workshop, "Doing Business with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory," is also sponsored by the San Diego Contracting Opportunities Center.

At the workshop, business owners will learn how to form partnerships with JPL and NASA.
