A Message from Tom Pistone
Dear SBIR/STTR Advocates, Awardees and Clients:
September holds the fate of the SBIR Program in its grasp. As to what happens after 9/30/11…. your guess is as good as mine. September 30th ends the most recent Continuing Resolution on SBIR from Capitol Hill, and many are left asking “What next?”. Our good friend Rick Shindell recently posted on Zyn.com that the program is being tossed around like a rag doll, and SBIR’s continuing resolution may soon lapse, or worse, the program may even be eliminated as it gets dragged out of Main Street and through a detour set up on Wall Street. We as vendors to the SBIR Program, and you as SBIR grantees & contractors, must make your voices heard if we want to save SBIR from being disfigured or dismantled.
I came by an article today from an SBIR entrepreneur named Jonathan Pearlman at Perceptral Inc. titled “How Not to Create Jobs: A Commentary on S.493”. In it he gives a local view of how small business effects the state of Wisconsin. If others continue to stand up and do the same in 49 other states through blogs, articles, tweets, and comments, we can truly make our voices heard throughout the tech world and onto the desks of our Reps in Capitol Hill.
From advocacy groups like the Small Biotechnology Business Coalition (SBBC) and Small Business Technology Council (SBTC) and the recently formed InnovationPAC, there are many ways to get involved. If you haven’t already, I implore you to write your local and state lawmakers about your concerns. Visit with them locally or join in on many scheduled SBIR Fly-Ins to Washington DC through the above advocacy groups. If you are like me, and are a huge proponent of Social Media, take advantage of vehicles like blogging and Twitter to amplify your opinions! Every voice makes a world of difference in getting our message across loud and clear.
Together, we stand with Small Business, American Innovation and Ingenuity,
