About the event:
A Tweetup is an event where people who tweet come together to meet in person, allowing them to share more than just 140 characters at a time. The event is open to the general public, including non-tweeters interested in learning more about business resources and making connections with other entrepreneurs in their area. Sean Greene, who heads up SBA’s startup division in Washington, DC, will provide remarks as well as Dr. Mark Drapeau, the Director of Innovative Engagement at Microsoft. The Tweetup will provide entrepreneurs insights and updates into the $2.5 billion in annual federal funding for small business research, innovation, and technology transfer.
Journalists wishing to cover the event or arrange interviews should contact Stephen Morris at email@example.com.
