Connecticut has hosted two highly successful national SBIR conferences bringing together industry, academia and government to encourage innovation and commercialization. This conference will spur innovation, manufacturing and export. Connect with knowledgeable contacts to help fund your innovations, understand the needs of global companies, and help you learn the subtle nuances of international trade.


If you are a technology company, start-up, manufacturer, college/university, service provider or small business involved with “innovation to export,” this is the summit for you!


Create personal agendas, promote your business, and interact with your fellow attendees beforehand! Prior to the event, use free state-of-the-art social networking tools to make introductions, set appointments, and do business.

SBIR & Global Trade Summit

Our Office, in conjunction with the federal SBIR program, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, and the U.S. Department of Commerce invites you to attend a new kind of SBIR conference! As our nation’s focus shifts towards job growth and international trade, efficient business strategies are crucial.

“My device would sell well in international markets. I need help getting started and may need connections for continued support for my innovations.”
