In her soon to be published book, Next Generation Innovation, the Honorable Kelly H. Carnes bridges the gap between assumptions about working with government and the realities of doing so.
Despite the great impact that comes from securing a government grant, contract or alliance, many innovators, entrepreneurs, businesses and other organizations do not pursue government partnerships when it comes to their most innovative technologies.
But breakout technologies are precisely the kind that government is best positioned to support, helping to ensure these technologies make it to market and experience long-term success. In Next Generation Innovation, the Honorable Kelly H. Carnes bridges the gap between assumptions about working with government and the realities of doing so, arguing that by partnering with the Federal government, the greatest minds can supercharge their businesses and serve the common good.
NEXT GENERATION INNOVATION will be available on Amazon in early August 2023.
Carnes offers expert insights about the vital importance of researching opportunities and the competitive environment, and how to approach, and develop long-term relationships with Federal government departments and agencies. Ms. Carnes combines deep and broad understanding of government policy, budget, programs and processes, with practical tips for pursuing agency partnerships, securing funding, accelerating commercialization, and even shaping the long-term government policy and program agenda. Next Generation Innovation is a must-have guide for visionaries for whom the Federal government is an as-yet-unexplored (or under-explored) resource.
