SBIR & STTR Presentations and Exhibits

The Department of Defense occasionally supports presentations on the SBIR and STTR programs to groups of business people, investors, technology-oriented entrepreneurs and others interested in high-tech R&D. Frequently, these presentations are sponsored by federal, state and local business development or economic promotion agencies. If you are planning a similar event for 100 or more persons and would be interested in the possibility of having someone speak on the DoD's SBIR/STTR programs, please contact: SBIR Outreach.
