    “Innovation is a source of economic development, and the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs represent the largest source of early stage funding for innovative research and development projects—over $2 billion per year.  Researchers can learn more about these programs and how to leverage SBIR and STTR funding for their own startup ventures or through partnering with small businesses during two events this summer.  The SBIR Road Tour scheduled for Iowa City on July 15th is rare opportunity for small businesses seeking federal funding to learn more about these programs and get facetime with federal program managers.  Mark Henry, founder and CEO of Grow Emerging Companies LLC, will present a pre-conference workshop in Ames on July 13, “An Insider’s Introduction to the SBIR/STTR Process; What You Need to Know to Be a Successful SBIR/STTR Applicant” and “How to Talk to Federal SBIR/STTR Program Managers; Making Your 10-Minute Window Count.” Henry will also be on hand for a limited number of one-on-one sessions with each conference attendee to help with the funding application process”.
