Maximizing Innovation Opportunities: The Many Roads to SBIR/STTR Funding

February 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

 

Tap into Billions in Funding

If you’re working on technology that would be of interest to federal agencies that participate in the SBIR program, you can’t afford to miss this event!

 

Each year, $4 billion is set aside annually for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. As a small business, manufacturer, inventor, or university researcher, you might be eligible to tap into this funding stream.

 

On February 29, the Monroe County Finger Lakes APEX Accelerator is bringing representatives from several federal agencies to NextCorps from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. During this event, you’ll have the chance to hear about the funding opportunities and resources that are available to help commercialize technologies, as well as how to apply for consideration.
