The FedMarketPlace@WBT connects federal labs and agencies within the WBT Marketplace, facilitating the transition of promising technologies developed at federal agencies and federal labs available for purchase, licensing to industry, and strategic partnerships. Federal labs and agencies are invited to work with the WBT team to help source technologies believed to be the most attractive to potential investors or corporate strategic partners. WBT staff will provide support throughout the process, from assistance in completing an online application (a summary description of the technology and how it addresses a specific market need) to preparing tech transfer professionals or researchers to present the opportunity to an audience of investors and corporate strategic partners.

The FedMarketPlace@WBT will also serve as a focal point for lab, agency leaders, lab researchers and tech transfer professionals, to discuss the variety of technology opportunities available for investment and licensing specific to their lab or agency. Our goal is to narrow the enormous set of opportunities currently available at a given lab or agency, and vet these opportunities to a workable group where all may benefit from participation in the WBT in a methodical, supportive manner.
