Today marks 40 years since the Small Business Innovation Research program was signed into law. Since then, Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) programs have become the largest source of early-stage funding in America, helping innovators, entrepreneurs, and small businesses advance game-changing technologies.

This week, SBIR/STTR, also known as America’s Seed Fund, hosted events featuring federal agency program managers who administer over 7,000 new awards annually to innovators across the country. Watch recordings of America’s Seed Fund Week events.
