December 13, 2023

Join Arrowhead Center's NM FAST program for our seventh annual New Mexico SBIR/STTR Innovation Summit. Explore the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Federal program managers from several agencies will guide you through the innovation ecosystem, help you connect with decision-makers in one-on-one sessions, and introduce you to non-dilutive funding opportunities for your innovative products and services.

Catch NIH SEED's Small Business Policy Manager Adam Sorkin at the one-on-one sessions!

The Innovation Summit will feature:

  • Panels that will break down the SBIR/STTR process for first-time applicants, discuss innovation R&D funding mechanisms, and illustrate the importance of teaming and partnering
  • Rapid-fire pitches and topic pre-releases from federal SBIR/STTR program managers and representatives
  • Panel discussion on the SBIR/STTR proposal evaluation process and key criteria with federal program managers
  • Organized networking sessions providing companies time to discuss their technologies or innovations with federal program managers, key personnel, and NM business support organizations. All attendees will have a chance to meet with program managers one-on-one.

This event is an initiative of the New Mexico Federal and State Technology (NM FAST) program, which is funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
