This webinar will discuss the SBA's Final Rule that went into effect on January 28, 2013, amending the size and affiliation regulations for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs. The webinar will review important changes to the program requirements, and how those changes may signal modifications to other small business programs. Among other topics, it will cover how the new regulations clarify the thresholds for size affiliation, and permit small businesses pursuing SBIR awards to be backed by multiple investment companies.
