Identifying Air Force Partners for SBIR/STTR Applicants
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs at the Air Force and other Department of Defense services and components offer unique opportunities for next-generation research and development focused small technology firms to build successful and profitable contracting relationships with defense stakeholders.
But these business relationships do not come automatically with an SBIR or STTR award.
In this virtual meetup with Anissa Lumpkin, we’ll discuss the Air Force SBIR/STTR programs, the qualities of successful Air Force contractors, and look at effective strategies to identify Air Force stakeholders for your early-stage defense focused business development.
Date: Thursday, October 8, 2020
Time: 2:00 PM MDT
Where: Webex details will be provided.
