NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology

No-host breakfast roundtables for women in technical fields will be held at NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory on Tuesday, July 23, and Friday, August 16, to acquaint businesswomen with JPLs technology transfer programs.

The roundtables are designed to discuss opportunities for local businesswomen to license JPLs technology through a variety of programs and to meet some of JPLs 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 JPLs cafeterias will be set aside for networking until 9 a.m.
