SBDC NEWS RELEASE / July 19, 2017 Online at: IDAHO SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTERS TO HOLD TECHNOLOGY FUNDING WORKSHOPS IN SIX IDAHO CITIES The Idaho Small Business Development Center (SBDC), headquartered in the College of Business and Economics at Boise State University, is teaming up with the Idaho National Laboratory and the Idaho Department of Commerce to hold a series of small business funding workshops across Idaho. The Idaho Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) road tour will highlight state and national grant programs, as well as local business resources for Idaho’s technology entrepreneurs and small business owners. Researchers and small technology firms can learn how to access $2.5 billion in grants through the SBIR and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. These programs, funded through the Small Business Administration, encourage domestic small businesses to engage in high-growth research and development with potential for commercialization in the market. Attendees also will learn about nearly $1 million in commercialization grants available annually to Idaho companies through the Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission (IGEM) program. Through IGEM, the Idaho Department of Commerce funds commercialization research where business experts collaborate with university researchers to bring viable technologies to market. Participants also will hear about collaborating with Idaho National Laboratory to discover innovative nuclear and clean energy solutions and critical infrastructure. Finally, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about opportunities to connect with the Department of Energy's SBIR program to advance research and development. Local representatives from the Department of Labor, Economic Development organizations and Idaho State University also will be available for one-on-one meetings to discuss local resources and business funding opportunities for research and development.
