About the event

Join us for the Oklahoma City stop on America's Seed Fund Road Tour 2023, a half-day event dedicated to showcasing the exciting technology funding opportunities available through the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Known as America's Seed Fund, these programs provide over $4 billion in funding to empower scientific excellence and technological innovation by investing federal research funds in small businesses.

This event offers a unique chance to engage with federal program managers from various participating government agencies that provide funding. It's also an excellent opportunity to connect with fellow technology entrepreneurs and the state's innovation ecosystem members.

Whether you're an innovator, entrepreneur, researcher, or small technology firm based in Oklahoma, this event is tailored just for you.
