STEM4US! Energy, Technology & STEM Festival Is Back
Celebrating the 45th Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Week
Wednesday – Saturday, September 16-19, 2015 

The STEM4US! Energy, Technology & STEM Festival, in its second year, provides a unique opportunity for top executives and professional in the energy, technology, and venture capital sectors to network with government, academic, and non-profit leaders assembled in Washington, DC for the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Legislative Conference.  This event is inspired by the South by Southwest Interactive Festival (SXSW), a five-day conference held in Austin, TX, which is considered by some as the largest gathering of emerging technology leaders in the world.

Would you like to co-sponsor the festival, our tech & energy exec reception, or any of other our cool Energy, Tech, & STEM Festivalevents? Do you have something inspirational to share as a speaker at one of our workshops? Is your company or organization looking for ways to attract talent or promote your products or services at our job fair, innovation gallery, and/or STEM college fair?
