The SBIR Road Tour provides small businesses and researchers the opportunity to learn firsthand about America’s largest seed fund, which awards billions of dollars annually. Led by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs award more than $2.5 billion annually to small businesses developing groundbreaking, high-risk technologies while taking no equity. Program managers from at least 11 federal agencies will attend the Huntington event to conduct one-on-one meetings with attendees. The West Virginia stop on the SBIR Road Tour is co-sponsored by Marshall University, the Robert C. Byrd Institute, the Marshall University Research Corporation, the Alliance for the Economic Revitalization of Southern West Virginia and the West Virginia Small Business Development Center.
