To all Vermont Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Researchers or Small Technology Firms,

The 2019 SBIR Road Tour is coming to Burlington on September 16th  to convey the non-dilutive, technology funding opportunity provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Individual program managers from 16 participating agencies representing over $3 billion in early stage funding will participate in this one day event alongside technology entrepreneurs and state innovation ecosystem members.

Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.
