The 2005 Fall National Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Conference Series
PLATTSBURGH, NY __If you think that your business could benefit from part of the more
than $2 billion available in government funding and contracts, this is an opportunity
you cannot afford to miss. Learn how to tap into a $2 billion business resource through
the National SBIR/STTR Program.
The National Science Foundation, in association with the Small Business Administration, New York State Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) and all 11 SBIR agencies,* is sponsoring this 2005 Fall National SBIR/STTR Conference.
At the national conference in Albany, November 14-17, 2005, new and aspiring entrepreneurs can learn about the SBIR/ STTR Program, including how to apply for, and what it takes to win, some of the $2+ billion in U.S. Government Research and Development investments.
Annually, the SBIR and STTR programs provide more than $2 billion to small businesses through federal programs to help entrepreneurs take their ideas from conception to reality. The SBIR/STTR Program funds high-risk projects at the earliest stages of technology development - before companies can attract venture capital - and works with you through that development and on into the actual commercialization of your technology. Remember, successful SBIR/STTR ventures not only create successful companies, they create jobs; jobs in your region and across the country.
More and more large corporations are outsourcing and looking for the innovative help provided by smaller companies. How do you tap into this network? How do you move from idea to product? This conference program has been developed with the total journey in mind.
