Inclusive Alliance

Accelerating Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Federal Research in Support of High-Growth Minority Businesses

National Minority Technology Council

Looking Forward Research & Development

Innovation fuels economic growth, the creation of new industries, companies, jobs, products and services, and the global competitiveness of U.S. industries.  


One driver of successful innovation is technology transfer, in which the private sector adapts public and private research for use in the marketplace.


NMTC's Inclusive Alliance aims to work with the Higher Education community to enable technology breakthroughs due to  shifts in demographics, increase in urbanization and shifts in global economic power.

Inclusive Alliance Program Areas

The idea for this collaboration model was inspired by the actions of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) to create a MBDA Inclusive Innovation Initiative "I3 Program"
(
MBDA I3 Program Website).  

The National Minority Technology Council is a Regional Innovation Ecosystem Partner for  the U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency's (MBDA) Inclusive Innovation Initiative (I3) Program 

(Click to view listing).

This effort to establish a collaboration between the minority technology industry, multiple U.S. Department of Commerce agencies, higher education institutions and federal research labs across the nation.  NMTC has developed a regional economic ecosystem framework anchored in applied research  utilizing evidence base methodologies.   

U.S. Department of Commerce

Partnerships vary in nature and include invention disclosures, licenses issued on existing patents, Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), industry partnerships, new products, and successful self sustaining spinoff companies created for such products.

Agencies with Federal laboratories have plans and performance goals to increase the number and pace of effective technology transfer and commercialization activities in partnership with non federal entities including private firms, research organizations, and NGO's.


Congressional legislative mandates and federal Agency goals challenge the current status quo to create new capabilities with both minority owned businesses and minority serving higher education institutions.


NMTC's efforts to marry the minority technology community with the HBCU/MSI community creates a partner-led "enterprise" program approach that aligns the teaming capacity of the tech industry with the institutional knowledge and resources found in the University community.

Inclusive Alliance Program Mission

The Inclusive Alliance Higher-Ed Research Cohort was established by the National Minority Technology Council (NMTC) to encourage agencies with Federal Laboratories to collaborate,  partner and share the expertise internal to Federal Research Laboratories with minority businesses and to encourage thier participation in high growth and diverse regional technology innovation clusters  across the country.


Joint Mission Board Agreements allow for community collaborations on job creation, contract development, economic and education infrastructure and enterprise governance all focused on agreed outcomes framed in both research and faith in our human desire to serve.

 District and Regional Joint Mission Board Agreements are developed through a governance process that results in an active agreement document (MOU) that strengthens regional commercialization, STEM/ICT Workforce Readiness Pipeline and the health of the community ecosystem. 

Public-Private Partnerships designed for public good and those technical areas of importance to the Joint Mission are formulated by
NMTC's Joint Mission Board.

We accomplish this by utilizing growth algorithms to increase community economic capacity and education relevance through industry led public-private partnerships and research based cooperative agreements.

Our vision of collaboration ensures an increase in community access to workforce opportunities and resources.
