SSTI partners with NSF to bring you latest in funding, entrepreneurial support

August 15, 2019

We are excited to be partnering with NSF during SSTI’s Annual Conference, Sept.9 through 11 in Providence, Rhode Island, to bring you the latest information and ideas on SBIR/STTR and university/industry partnerships.

We have lined up several important sessions, linked below that will be filled with information on how you can help your entrepreneurs access SBIR/STTR and how to support commercialization in your region. It’s not too late to register, but hurry if you want to take advantage of the special rate we have reserved for you at a nearby hotel – our block closes when it’s full or on Saturday, whichever comes first.
