A NanoBCA Retrospective — A Conversation with Vincent Caprio [PODCAST]

This week I sat down with Vincent Caprio, Founder and Executive Director of the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA). Vince has been on the forefront of nano innovations and optimizing opportunities for businesses to commercialize their nano creations for more than two decades. In founding the NanoBCA, Vince has placed it at the center of nanotechnology commercialization, national policy, law, and business since the beginning of the public’s focus on nanotechnology. NanoBCA has provided a much-needed spotlight on how nanotechnology has been a critical driver for the development of advanced materials, smart technology, innovations in chemistry, and a diverse range of other initiatives that have greatly benefited many economic sectors of the economy. As Chair of the Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) Committee of the NanoBCA, I have long admired Vince’s vision, organization-building skills, and his seemingly endless list of contacts -- there is no one in Washington, D.C., or elsewhere, whom Vince does not know!

In our conversation, Vince shares a bit about the early days of nanotechnology, how NanoBCA helped frame critical EHS issues in a way that moved the technology forward, his relationship with and deep engagement in the activities of the National Nanotechnology Initiative, his engagement with key Senators and Representatives on nano matters, and what’s next for nanotechnology after the 2020 elections.
