Schoppe, president of Fuentek, LLC (www.fuentek.com), has announced that the firm participated in the Goddard Space Flight Center Innovative Partnerships Program Office’s technical interchange meetings which featured leaders from the Clinton Foundation, Columbia University, Claros Diagnostics and the Venture Investment Technical Assistance Initiative (VITA) on April 23 and 24 in New York City. Fuentek assisted in the coordination, planning and preparation for the meetings which were held to discuss future partnering opportunities regarding technologies involving climate measurement instruments, ruggedized electronic devices and bioscience devices. The firm is facilitating follow-up meetings to foster partnership development between the organizations.
“We are pleased that we were able to bring these different organizations together to discuss the various types of technology being developed,” said Schoppe. “Finding the common ground between these groups is one of the best ways to determine how new types of technology can be used in situations other than those for which they were originally developed.”
