The U.S. Small Business Administration will host the virtual 2021 National SBIR Week for small business innovators July 19-23. The event is designed to connect entrepreneurs working on advanced technology to the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
“The $4 billion in federal non-dilutive funding offered through SBA’s SBIR/STTR programs is often a critical milestone in moving an entrepreneur’s research idea from concept to commercial product/services. This national conference will enable entrepreneurs across the country to engage virtually with the federal program managers that oversee more than 7,000 awards annually,” said John Williams, Director of Innovation and Technology.
