Respected Business Leaders to Reveal Paths in International Trade

DALLAS, TX | Posted on August 6th, 2007

Experts in diverse fields doing business on the world stage will hold free afternoon classes at the Dallas Convention Center, October 2, as a salute to International Nanotechnology Week.

The classes are being organized by John J. Barnes, a mentor and expert advisor to companies in the National Science Foundation's Small Business Innovation Research program, Phase 2, by arrangement with Development Capital Networks.

Barnes has titled the class "InterNano 101: The World According to NARP," which he says (with a smile) stands for The International Business of Nanotechnology's Array of Real Potentialities.

"The goal of the class," says Barnes, "is to lay out the business and investment climate for what is, and what will be, coming out of our best research and industrial laboratories; and put it in terms and benchmarks that are important to the professional and the wide-eyed student alike."

This and other tutorials are free to interested public as a prelude to nanoTX'07, the big international science conference and trade expo taking place in the same area the following two days, .

"The best reason to catch this class," says Barnes, "is the premier panel that shows you the international waterways in which the nanotechnology fish will be swimming."

The renowned experts include:

1. Pat Custer, one of the leading U.S. entrepreneurs in China and whom the New York Private Equity Forums calls "one of the nation's leading authorities on Asian business development"
2. Beth Huddleston, Chief Protocol Officer, City of Dallas
3. Dan Luton, State of Oklahoma's Center for Advanced Science and Technology
4. Maura Schreier-Fleming, noted international sales authority, writing columns in Austin, Dallas, and Houston Business Journals
5. Patricia Moore, a native of Colombia, now representing the International Trade Center associated with the Dallas Community College District
6. Kristine Schwope, long-term member of the board of DFW International, also working with Texas Asian Chamber of Commerce
7. Stephen Turner, International Business Officer for KOTRA (South Korea Trade Agency)

Also, foreign consuls, international trade officers, and distinguished professors and professionals savvy about the international business scene will explain what it takes to promote a technology initiative like NANO across borders. The U.S. State Department's Office of Foreign Missions and U.S. Senator John Cornyn's office will be sending representatives as class panelists.

"Last year, one of the hits of the public preview day was the Nanotech 101 class put on by the Austin Community College," says Barnes, "so we hope this class will also attract good attendance in the technology/business popularization niche."

Classes begin at 12:30 -2:30pm and 3:00-5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 2, 2007, for adults at the Dallas Convention Center conference rooms near Hall A as part of a free public preview of the nanoTX'07 conference/expo. Register on-line at the sign of the Mortarboard (scholar's) Cap,
