Why & How to Join

Membership offers many benefits, including:

  • Insight into Government research needs. This helps companies understand opportunities and target Internal Research and Development (IR&D) investments in areas that align with Government needs.
  • Access to the Federal market by small and emerging firms. The Government desires innovations from small companies, but those companies often lack the contracting experience and capabilities to partner with the Government. MTEC membership makes it easy for the smallest company to compete for federally-funded research and technology development.
  • Networking opportunities. Organizations can partner with and learn from one another and government stakeholders at events, conferences and forums.

Joining MTEC is a simple process.
