The Office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development (TTED) at Missouri S&T co-sponsored the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Road Tour in St. Louis on Aug. 18. The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to promote the non-dilutive technology funding opportunity provided through the SBIR and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

One of the program’s goals is to engage under-represented groups and help individuals grow their businesses. Of the 155 participants at the St. Louis stop, 35 percent of attendees were women, 10 percent were African-American, and a total of 35 percent of attendees were non-white. Participants included residents of Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Patricia Brown-Dixon, region VII administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration, and Missouri state Rep. Keith English were among the attendees.
