In September, the SBTDC hosted an SBIR Roundtable session for recent SBIR awardees.
The roundtable series is focused on two things:
1.) educating SBIR awardees on specific business topics that are often challenge areas for early stage tech companies, and
2.) providing an opportunity for like-minded companies to network.
The topic of our last session was focused on how to attract business level talent to a small tech company. The panelists included attorney Walter Daniels, entrepreneur and CEO Benny Ward and First Flight CEO Andy Schwab. The session was moderated by John Hardin, Director of the Board of Science, Technology and Innovation. Given the success of this event, we expect to plan and carry out two Roundtable events in 2018.
