Targeted meetings were set with over 30 Israeli firms that were determined by the Montana World Trade Center and their Israeli partners to be suitable prospects for product/service export and/or collaborative research and development. Participants also attended BioMed and New-Tech Exhibitions where they were able to leverage those connections even further within the Isreali bio and technology sectors.

“Our firm has three distinct technologies that we have multiple joint venture opportunities for BIRD foundation grants. MWTC has helped us to identify and connect with two or more potential partners for each,” said Bill Clawson of LCW Supercritical Technologies. “We’ve also initialized contact with a firm interested in our compact fluorescent recycling technology… This is an immediate business opportunity not grant opportunity.”
