The U.S. Small Business Administration: Beyond SBIR

The FLC is proud to present the first in a series of webinars focused on technology transfer education to better understand the benefits of public-private partnerships.

This inaugural webinar will provide information for technology transfer professionals to better understand the benefits of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs and the role of the Small Business Administration (SBA) in administering these programs to help small businesses succeed. The SBA is the only cabinet-level federal agency fully dedicated to small businesses and provides counseling, capital, and contracting expertise as the nation’s only go-to resource for small businesses.

This presentation will highlight SBA programs beyond SBIR/STTR for technology transfer professionals and their partners and will show you how to take advantage of these programs.

Learn about:

  • How SBA supports small business development
  • How these resources can benefit you and your partners in launching new technologies and technology applications
  • The wide range of unique SBA programs, including both national and local assistance programs
