Attendees will explore:

  • Collaborative STTR/SBIR proposal strategies
  • Positioning with agency priority areas
  • Business development resources
  • Opportunity networking
  • University tech transfer, intellectual property, and more!

Free to all university personnel and just $25 for small business reps – advance registration is requested. Lunch will be provided.
