Do you have an early-stage technology or innovative approach that can address important needs in our nation for agricultural production, forestry management, or strengthening rural communities? Join us on June 15 to learn more about non-dilutive seed funding for small businesses through the USDA SBIR program.
In this virtual meetup, you'll hear from Melinda Coffman with the ) U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The USDA SBIR program offers competitively awarded grants to qualified small businesses to support high quality research related to important scientific problems and opportunities in agriculture that could lead to significant public benefits. The program stimulates technological innovations in the private sector and strengthens the role of federal research and development in support of small businesses. The SBIR program also fosters and encourages participation by women-owned and socially or economically disadvantaged small businesses.
This event and the Montana Innovation Partnership powered by TechLink are funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration with additional program support from the Montana Department of Commerce and Montana State University.
