“Encountering Innovation was a huge success for HCI Energy and helped us gain knowledge and leads into the military,” said Kevin Kowalik, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for HCI Energy. "Our experience with the SBDC was fantastic. We would highly recommend that all small businesses use their service.”

HCI first contacted the Kansas SBDC Tech Center in 2019 when they applied to present at the annual Encountering Innovation conference. Kansas SBDC advisors prepped the HCI team for Encountering Innovation and served as influencing advocates.
