During 2020, four regional SBIR Weeks were held. These virtual events were part of national outreach efforts connecting entrepreneurs working on advanced technologies to the country’s largest source of early stage funding – the SBIR/STTR programs. Also known as America’s Seed Fund, the SBIR/STTR programs provide over $3.7 billion in funding to small businesses each year in a wide variety of technology areas.
Virtual events will continue during 2021 providing registrants with an opportunity to hear directly from the participating federal agency program managers that administer over 5,500 new awards annually and to meet one-on-one with program decision makers.
So, if you’re an Innovator, Entrepreneur, Researcher, or Small Technology Firm, don’t miss this opportunity.
