In 2012, President Barack Obama proclaimed November of each year as the National Entrepreneurship Month celebrating innovation and commercialization. Business startups are responsible for most of the growth in jobs in the country. In recent years, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) have produced a significant number of patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights. FAMU is convinced that these novel developments by faculty, staff and students will contribute significantly to the economic health and well-being of this country by stimulating new startup businesses that in turn will generate more new jobs.
On behalf of the FAMU Division of Research and the Office of Technology Transfer, it Is my distinct honor to invite you to the second annual showcase (FAMU ISHOW) of our innovations in celebration of the National Entrepreneurship Month. Come get a glimpse of how Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is "Innovating Today for a Better Tomorrow" on Friday, November 7, 2014 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the FAMU Foundation Building, 625 East Tennessee Street, Tallahassee, FL.
