Join us on Thursday, August 20, 2020, for the AFCEA NOVA Small Business Virtual Breakfast Event as we welcome Mr. David Schiff, NavalX Director of Strategic Engagement, Partnerships, & Talent Acquisition; and Commander Sam “Chubs” Gray, NavalX Deputy Director. NavalX and its collaborative network is designed to build partnerships to meet warfighter needs and empower small businesses to help the Dept of the Navy better solve its problems.

Mr. Schiff and CDR Gray will share what NavalX is all about – its vision, mission, and core lines of effort. Following a brief presentation, the panelists will address questions from the audience.

Check out the NavalX website for highlights of the work they do, recent footage of their Alexandria’s co-working space ribbon cutting ceremony, and video interviews with their Dept of Navy partners explaining their needs, challenges, and capabilities.

We look forward to having you join us for a unique virtual event!
