Another Great Success: The 2017 Idaho SBIR Road Tour
The 2017 National SBIR Road Tour was a Great Success!
More than 70 Idaho entrepreneurs and small business owners assembled at Boise State University on May 2nd, 2017 to hear the story of non-dilutive technology funding opportunities provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Individual program managers from 11 participating Federal Agencies, representing $2.5 billion in early stage funding, participated in this one-day event alongside technology entrepreneurs and innovation supporters from across Idaho.
While this year’s National SBIR Road Tour is complete, there are many more SBIR-related training and informational sessions scheduled for the coming months. Contact Idaho SBDC’s SBIR Program Manager, Dave McEwen, for more information at DaveMcEwen@boisestate.edu.
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs provide approximately $2.5 billion annually in non-dilutive early-stage technology funding to small businesses. The SBIR Road Tour is an opportunity for tech startups, innovators, entrepreneurs, and researchers to learn how to access this funding, meet one-on-one with decision makers, and connect with local state innovation ecosystem members. This one-day event provides attendees, including women and minority entrepreneurs, the opportunity to engage with representatives from various SBIR/STTR agencies.
