Countdown To Success Supplier Summit – March 25, 2020

Please join us for the Countdown To Success Supplier Summit! The same team that brought you the 2018 Launch with NASA Small Business Forum featuring NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, which was recognized on the state and national level by the SC Association of Counties and National Association of Counties as a leading community and economic development project, has organized the Countdown To Success Supplier Summit.

  • Obtain information regarding mentoring, workforce development, and resources from government organizations such as the Small Business Administration, Small Business Development Center, Charleston County Government, and more.
  • Ride in an autonomous shuttle to the Countdown To Success STEM Experience and interact with the region’s future workforce – area high school students who are interested in pursuing a STEM career.
  • Hear Supplier Summit Luncheon keynote speaker and former NASA Administrator Major General Charles F. Bolden, Jr.
