The Small Business Innovation Research program and its sister, Small Business Technology Transfer, together provide $2.5 billion annually in federal funding for research by small companies. West Virginia innovators can engage SBIR/STTR leaders face-to-face when the 2016 national SBIR Road Tour visits.
Who should attend?
- Entrepreneurial university researchers
- Small firms in the early stages of R&D of new products or services
- Previous SBIR/STTR award winners interested in new funding opportunities
If you or your company could use early-stage, non-dilutive research funding, this rare gathering of state and federal representatives – including SBIR program managers from several agencies – is an event you don’t want to miss.
