Regional SBIR Weeks
Between 2015 and 2019, the SBIR Road Tour visited every state and Puerto Rico – mostly traveling by bus between stops. These stops brought together local innovation ecosystems around the country with agency decision makers and connected entrepreneurs to additional resources to help their small businesses start and grow. Amid travel and event challenges, the decision was made to go virtual for the 2020 events.
Rebranded as Regional SBIR Weeks, each virtual event, hosted by a local organization, will provide attendees with an opportunity to participate in live streaming panels and presentations with participating federal agencies and to meet virtually one-on-one with program decision makers.
