Iowa SBIR Showcase–Sept. 6

Hosted by Iowa Innovation Corporation, the Iowa SBIR Showcase is part of a national outreach effort to convey the technology funding opportunity provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

Federal and State Program Managers representing the $2.5 billion in early stage funding will virtually meet with technology entrepreneurs and innovation supporters in Iowa.

The program will consist of a brief intro to SBIR, a panel of past winners, and will feature:

  • A Phase I Pitch Competition for Iowa winners: $5,000 Prize
  • A Phase II Pitch Competition for Iowa Winners: $10,000 Prize

Additionally and most importantly you will be able to schedule Virtual 1-on-1s with Federal Agency Program Managers, where you will have the opportunity to talk directly to them about your innovative technology and company.
