Pete CodellaUtah Innovation Center

The 2021 National SBIR Week is a virtual, collaborative outreach effort connecting entrepreneurs working on advanced technologies with the organizations that support them 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 $4 billion in funding to small businesses each year in a wide variety of technology areas.

The 2021 National SBIR Week will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear directly from the participating federal agency program managers that administer over 7,000 new awards annually. Register by July 15th for a chance to virtually meet one-on-one with program decision makers.

If you’re an Innovator, Entrepreneur, Researcher, or Small Technology Firm, don’t miss this opportunity!
