The SBIR Road Tour will be held Sept. 20, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Riggs Alumni Center at the University of Maryland, College Park. It is hosted by UM Ventures and Maryland’s Small Business Development Center.
America’s Seed Fund — Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs — annually provides approximately $3 billion in non-dilutive early-stage technology funding.
The SBIR Road Tour is an opportunity for tech innovators, entrepreneurs, and researchers to learn how to access this funding, meet one-on-one with decision-makers, and connect with local innovation ecosystem members.
This one-day event will provide attendees, including women and minority entrepreneurs, the opportunity to engage with representatives from various SBIR/STTR agencies.
