NASA’s Technology Transfer Program has partnered with tech industry veteran and marketing executive, Everette Taylor.
Taylor, a serial entrepreneur and champion of the high tech startup community, has been a long-standing supporter of programs that assist aspiring tech entrepreneurs. As brand ambassador, he will advocate for the commercialization of NASA technologies and introduce NASA’s technology portfolio to his network. This will help to spread awareness of the Technology Transfer Program to high tech entrepreneurs who can utilize NASA technology for their own commercial ventures.
"We are excited to work with Mr. Taylor on such an innovative marketing project. Given his expertise and vast network within the tech industry, we believe he will be able to help further awareness of the myriad ways that companies can use NASA technology," says Daniel Lockney, NASA's Technology Transfer Program Executive.
Taylor brings a massive social media audience and a successful track record of leading brand marketing campaigns for tech companies and products.
"It’s an incredible honor to represent such an amazing organization that I dreamt about working with as a kid in Virginia. There are so many entrepreneurs out there that are unaware of NASA’s incredible resources. Simply ecstatic to be able to shed light on some of these opportunities," says Mr. Taylor.
NASA research and development has tangible benefits that go beyond supporting mission needs, and by transferring technology out of the lab to the private sector, jobs are created, revenue is generated, costs savings are increased, and sometimes lives are even saved. From new medical devices, agricultural products, innovative consumer goods, and more NASA technology works for the benefit of the Nation and the world.
