2017 HHS SBIR/STTR Conference


Tuesday, November 7, 2017 (All day) to Thursday, November 9, 2017 (All day)

A cornerstone of the HHS’s congressionally mandated outreach efforts, this three-day national HHS SBIR/STTR Conference is designed to educate attendees about the America’s Largest Seed Fund and how to apply for these commercialization dollars.  With over $920 million dollars of annual HHS funding, this is one of the largest sources of early-stage capital for technology commercialization in the United States.

The HHS’s SBIR/STTR programs allow US-owned small businesses to forge academic partnerships and build productive businesses.  With this funding, the partners can engage in research and development that has a strong potential to deliver products and services, including medical devices, diagnostics, digital health, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, to improve the health of Americans.
