Philly Speaks had the pleasure of interviewing John Williams, Director of the SBIR program about the SBIR National Road Tour.
What is the SBIR National Road Tour? 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. The SBIR/STTR programs annually provide $2.5 billion in funding to small advanced technology firms to spur new technological discoveries and facilitate the commercialization of innovations.
Local innovation supporters in communities who have historically underutilized the opportunities provided through the SBIR/STTR programs have invited representatives of America’s Largest Seed Fund to engage the small advanced technology community, including women and minority-owned research and development businesses.
So, if you’re an Innovator, Entrepreneur, Researcher, or Small Technology Firm, don’t miss this opportunity to connect with the tour.
~Philly Speaks will be staying updated with this tour to offer our listeners an opportunity to hear about all things entrepreneurship, community building, technology, and funding opportunities.
