Event description
The SBIR Road Tour connects entrepreneurs to the country's largest source of early stage funding - the SBIR/STTR programs.

About this Event

The 2020 SBIR Road Tour has been RESCHEDULED for Monday, September 14th in response to the current COVID-19 situation.

The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to convey the non-dilutive technology funding opportunity provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Federal and State Program Managers representing the $2.5 billion in early stage funding have been invited to attend a series of events alongside technology entrepreneurs and innovation supporters from across the United States.

This stop on the Road Tour will be hosted by First Flight Venture Center and will give attendees a face-to-face opportunity to talk directly to federal agency Program Managers and decision makers.
