SBIR is an excellent program but is rarely the only resource available to innovative companies in the most vibrant regional economies. This session will feature mini-discussions on a variety of ways that state, local, university and federal partners support innovators, including matching awards, customer discovery, mentorship and more. Join us and participate in the conversations that are most relevant to you.
