SBA Accepting Nominations for Small Business Innovation Research Awards

December 26, 2012

The U.S. Small Business Administration is seeking nominations for awards honoring the critical economic role small businesses play in federally funded research and development through SBA’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

Two awards will be given: the Hall of Fame award recognizing companies that have an extended period of extraordinary success of research, innovation and product commercialization; and another, the Tibbetts Award with two categories, one for companies that have participated in the SBIR/STTR programs, and another for individuals who advocate on behalf of the programs.

The awards are presented to companies and individuals that are beacons of promise and models of excellence in high technology.

Selections for Tibbetts Awards are based on several factors, including the economic impact of the technological innovation, overall business achievement and demonstration of effective collaborations.

Nominations for these awards opened Dec. 17, 2012 and will close at 5 p.m. on Jan. 31, 2013.  Awards will be presented in Washington, DC, in May 2013.

To submit a nomination, visit (Tibbetts Awards – companies and individuals) and (Hall of Fame Awards).
