About the SBIR/STTR Roundtable

The SBIR/STTR Roundtable is an invitation only session where a select group of recent SBIR/STTR awardees are offered the opportunity share, learn and network. 

The session will kick off with two short presentations from the NC’s Board of Science and Technology that will focus on potential policies that may affect your business as well as recently released data on how NC compares in terms of innovation and commercialization with the rest of the United. The data highlights some of the success NC companies have had in the SBIR/STTR program as well as two key initiatives that have helped drive that success.

Attendees will then have an opportunity to share your input on these initiatives and provide recommendations on additional ways the state of North Carolina can provide an ecosystem that promotes SBIR/STTR award-winning companies. Your input may be incorporated into the design of future programs.
