EXIM Bank Roundtable Event Today

United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is hosting a roundtable discussion with Fred P. Hochberg, Chairman and President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) at Lumetrics in Henrietta. They will kick-off this discussion that focuses on how local businesses can develop and increase exporting opportunities. The Export-Import Bank will provide information regarding their available resources, including access to working capital, extending credit to buyers, assistance with finding new markets and customers, and other vital resources to help companies expand sales by accessing international markets.

The EXIM Bank is the official export credit agency of the United States. It is an independent, self-sustaining federal agency with a mission of supporting American jobs by facilitating the export of U.S. goods and services. The EXIM Bank helps level the playing field for U.S. goods and services going up against foreign competition in overseas markets, so that American companies can create more good-paying American jobs. Because it is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States, EXIM Bank can provide export financing that fills gaps in trade financing by assuming credit and country risks that the private sector is unable or unwilling to accept.

We hope you can join us for this interactive discussion.

When:            Monday, June 13th at  2:15 pm
Where:           Lumetrics

February New York Photonics “Second Tuesday”

January 27, 2016

Please join us on Tuesday, February 9th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm for February 2016 New York Photonics networking. The event will take place at the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC).

There will be a bar and plenty of hors d’oeurves to sustain your networking and science inquiry fervor.

This time we will have a facilitator on hand for the Science On A Sphere exhibition. The exhibit explores the paths of storms, changes in ocean temperature, the surface of Mars and other geospatial information, none of which would be possible without the numerous aerial, satellite-based or mission-based payloads supported by New York State OPI research and manufacturing.

Science On a Sphere is an interactive globe and three-dimensional data projection system that transforms real-time data from our Earth and other planets into striking graphic representations with stunning detail and accuracy. It is the focal point of the RMSC’s new Data Theater, the re-invented Schuyler C. Townson Research Library reading room, where geographical tools and other artifacts will be featured as the exhibit progresses.

Has your company played a role in the science behind Science On A Sphere?  Come share your experiences with colleagues.
