SBIR Virtual Week

The 2020 Regional SBIR Weeks are virtual, collaborative 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.

Each virtual event, hosted by a local organization, will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear directly from the participating federal agency program managers that administer over 5,500 new awards annually and to meet virtually one-on-one with program decision makers.

If you’re an innovator, entrepreneur, researcher, or small technology company, don’t miss this opportunity!

One on One Selections:

Each registrant will receive a unique link allowing them direct access to the Scheduler system to select meetings. Each registrant can select up to four meetings per company.
