While the tour is visiting Wyoming because it is an underrepresented state in securing SBIR/STTR funding, I wanted to let you know that the event is open to all and may be a tremendous engagement opportunity for Colorado based innovators. Please forward this opportunity to advanced technology firms within your state so they can engage directly with SBIR/STTR program decision makers. Attendees will learn from and network with SBIR/STTR leaders and program experts on how to gain access to the $2.5 Billion of non-diluted annual capital, the largest early stage seed funding in the world.
