Navigating Stimulus Funding Opportunities

 Advanced registration is closed.  Walk-ins are welcome! On site registration will be available at the door.



“The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century.”  The IT Sector in Massachusetts -- leading technology vendors as well as technology-enabled organizations -- is well positioned to take advantage of the opportunity to help build the technology infrastructure of the future.

Join us for this executive briefing as we deconstruct the stimulus package for technology organizations working in energy, healthcare, information technology, life sciences, and other sectors, and explore how local companies can take advantage of possible funding opportunities.
