About The Event

The 2008 Long Island Regional SBIR Workshop was a high impact educational event intended for starting entrepreneurs and small business owners interested in high risk, big payoff research funding through a federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant.
Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy and Yacov Shamash, Vice President for Economic Development and Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University, gave opening remarks to kick off the event in a standing room only audience. Some attendees came from as far as Buffalo and Rochester demonstrating the entrepreneurial nature of New York State! The workshop was a success with over 100 registered attendees from regional small businesses, research institutions, and regional resources with interest in helping their constituents to understand the SBIR/STTR Grant Program.
