SBIR Conference: Leading HBCUs to R&D Contract Opportunities!!

The AAMU-RISE Foundation will host  a STTR/SBIR Conference

Small Business Technology Transfer/Small Business Innovation Research 

Is your institution prepared for the paradigm shift? Funding for research and development is moving away from grants. Instead, it is becoming essential for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, as well as all Minority Serving Institutions, to start competing for government and private industry contracts. This conference is also ideal for scientists and small businesses.

The AAMU-RISE Foundation and the AAMU Center for Entrepreneurship, Innovation, & Economic Development are hosting this conference to bring together experts from government agencies, leading R&D companies, and academic institutions. They will be sharing their expertise, thus enabling HBCUs and MSIs to partner with the government and its contractors as they develop and commercialize innovative technologies.
