No-host breakfast roundtables for women in technical fields will be held at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Tuesday, July 23, and Friday, August 16, to acquaint businesswomen with JPLs technology transfer programs.
The roundtables are designed to discuss opportunities for local businesswomen to license JPLs technology through a variety of programs and to meet some of JPLs staff.
"JPL has a goal of including more women-owned businesses in our technology transfer efforts," said Joan Horvath, organizer of the meetings. "To accomplish this goal, we are trying to establish JPL as a good place for female entrepreneurs with technology businesses to network and make business contacts."
The roundtables are free, other than the optional breakfast purchase, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Check-in is from 7:30 to 7:45 a.m. each of the meeting days. An area in one of JPLs cafeterias will be set aside for networking until 9 a.m.
Registration forms are available at the Web site http://www-techtrans.jpl.nasa.gov/events.html. They may be faxed back to Joan Horvath at (818) 393-1366, or sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
