Join hundreds of IC colleagues at INSA's inaugural 8(a) National Security Showcase, June 8-9 from 2:00-5:00 pm ET. This two-day virtual event will see two dozen innovative 8(a) companies presenting brief capability overviews to prime contractors, venture capitalists, and acquisition and small business leads of IC and DoD agencies.

How It Works
Each day, 12 companies will present brief (10 minute) capability overviews, leaving time for a Q&A session with our panel of experts. Audience members will be encouraged to provide feedback throughout the program. At the conclusion of day 2, we will hold a 45-minute virtual networking reception with all registered attendees, presenters and panelists!
