The low-key, informal, hybrid Juice Bar offers a dialogue with government customers and industry and academia representatives on a selected topic.  Join us in person at Tech Grove or online via ZoomGov.  


On April 12, our guest will be Steve South, Director of the APEX Accelerator at the University of Central Florida.  Formerly known as the Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs), the APEX Accelerators support companies in doing business with the government at any level.  


Steve will be sharing insights on the seven (7) attributes the Department of Defense (DOD) wants to see in a company they consider "Defense Industrial Base Ready".  He will also be sharing a Roadmap to achieving those seven attributes and making your entry into doing business with the DOD smoother.  


In addition, Steve will be sharing information about all of the services the APEX Accelerators offer and the story behind the transition from PTACs to APEX Accelerators.
