News & Announcements
More than 150 people attended the SBIR/STTR National Road Tour in Iowa this past week, and more than 100 1:1 meetings took place with representatives from 18 federal agencies including NASA, USDA, National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation.
John Fuller, Ph.D, from Metabolic Technologies in Ames, said, "The roadshow was just what Iowa needed to help win more SBIR money. The state's commitment to IICorp to help with grant support and matching funding is excellent and companies should jump at the opportunity to get this additional funding."
