Florida Tech’s Women’s Business Center (WBC) and the Technological Research Development Authority (TRDA) kicked off the “Technically Speaking Luncheon Lecture Series” in April with a program on “Intellectual Property.”
The new series is made possible by a grant to the WBC from the PNC Foundation, which receives its principal funding from The PNC Financial Services Group. \”The lecture series addresses topics of concern to women-owned firms, which despite the challenging economy, have grown by 50 percent in the U.S. over the last decade,” said Craig Grant, PNC regional president for Florida East, speaking on behalf of the PNC Foundation. The luncheon series runs through November and costs $25 per event; an RSVP is required.
The series includes the following topics: May 24, Fundraising for your business; July 12, Government Contracting; Sept. 27, Manufacturing & Export; Nov. 15, Exit Strategies & Succession Planning.
