The Georgia MBDA Centers Connects Innovative Minority Business Enterprises with Funded Opportunities


The NEXTTECH 2020 launch introduced an innovative matchmaking series presented by the Georgia Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Centers. This program was established to connect minority business enterprises (MBEs) to technology-driven opportunities and partnerships.

NEXTTECH 2020 Pitch Day will match MBEs to decision-makers during a series of virtual meetings and presentations over the next six months.

The first NEXTTECH 2020 presentation on May 19 was in collaboration with the Department of Energy and focused on energy storage challenges. The Department of Energy shared a list of energy storage needs to be addressed through market-ready technology solutions.
