Description

Manufacturing makes up such a large portion of US GDP that it's $2.1 Trillion dollar value alone makes it the 9th largest economy in the world. So why do so many people think our domestic manufacturing industry is dying? Why do many entrepreneurs think they have to outsource their prototypes or production abroad, exposing their IP to theft and copycats?

Come hear the truth from two experts with serious bona fides on manufacturing in the US and globally on why manufacturing infrastructres are crucial for the US to remain a global technology leader. They'll also provide recommendations on how and where local entrepreneurs can get their high tech prototypes produced cost effectively.

Panelists:

- Lex Keen is the Founder and CEO of SecureFoundry. His expertise in microelectronic (and other high value) supply chains is unparalled in DFW.

- Marek Banczyk has over 20 years of experience in expanding consumer, B2B and SaaS products in the US and globally. He specializes in the intersection of market innovation, data science and branding.

This session will be moderated by Rodney Johnson, recently-appointed Director of the Tarrant County Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Mr. Johnson has deep experience in the private sector, including IBM and the Houston-Johnson Consulting Group. He is also an entrepreneur and has helped leverage resources in the Dallas/Fort Worth market areas to build the entrepreneurial community.
