The Internet, Global Positioning System (GPS), life-saving vaccines and many other technological advances started as federally funded research. There are billions in federal research and development (R&D) dollars awaiting minority entrepreneurs to commercialize the next great invention. In 2014, the Federal Government awarded more than $2 billion in funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

Panelists will share tips on how to access federal funding for R&D. They will also share strategies on how to unleash innovation in emerging and cutting edge industries. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore the possibilities of commercialized federally funded R&D to empower the growth of your business.
