The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort connecting entrepreneurs working on advanced technologies 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 $3 billion in funding to small businesses each year in a wide variety of technology areas.
College Park, Maryland, will serve as a SBIR Road Tour stop for the state of Maryland, and will provide 300 attendees with an opportunity to hear directly from the participating federal agency program managers that administer over 5,000 new awards annually and to meet one-on-one with program decision makers.
UM Ventures-College Park and Maryland Small Business Development Center have partnered to promote the event 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. Every SBIR Road Tour stop represents a coveted opportunity
to meet directly with Federal and State Program Managers who seed a wide spectrum of innovative ideas, while learning about your state sponsored innovation
