About this Webinar:
AMS and Nanohmics have grown to 50 and 23 employees strong, respectively, and become commercially strong in large part due to their SBIR awards. They will discuss how they have been involved with universities to develop technologies and how those relationships have evolved. They each will discuss key factors that contributed to the commercialization of their many SBIR technologies.

2011 Tibbetts Awards recipients, Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation and Nanohmics, were honored for the critical role they play in research and development for the government and for their success in driving innovation and creating new jobs.
