Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Road Tour
May 23 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC-5Free – $25
The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort 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 billion in funding to small businesses each year in a wide variety of technology areas.
Each SBIR Road Tour stop, hosted by a local organization, will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear directly from the participating federal agency program managers that administer over 5,000 new awards annually and to meet one-on-one with program decision makers.
The 2019 SD SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to promote the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. These two programs will invest nearly $3 billion in early-stage, non-dilutive capital this year to small high-tech companies from across the United States to develop innovative new products and processes. The Road Tour will bring twenty Program Managers from funding agencies to Sioux Falls for program insights and 1-on-1 meetings with individuals and companies thinking about submitting SBIR or STTR proposals. This is an excellent and inexpensive way to gain the same advantage as traveling to a national SBIR conference.
