Emerging Business and Technology Showcase

Surviving an Economic Downturn and Changing Government Priorities

On December 18 the NVTC Emerging Business & Entrepreneur Committee hosted an event focused on how to survive in an economic downturn. The event featured a lively panel discussion that allowed the audience to hear from individuals with first-hand knowledge and experience in living through an economic decline. The panelists for the event included Ken Bartee, Former President of McDonald Bradley; David Wiley, Founder, CEO and President, Widelity; and Matt Goddard, CEO and Co-Founder, R2i and the discussion was moderated by Darlene Darcy, Washington Business Journal. Also, for the first time, the EB&E Committee showcased a number of the area's emerging technology businesses. The exhibiting companies were selected because they offered innovative cost-saving solutions, efficiency and productivity that are essential to surviving uncertain economic conditions.
