DHS to Visit Florida, Puerto Rico for SBIR Road Tour

The Department of Homeland Security will launch a road tour for its Small Business Innovation Research in Puerto Rico and Florida. The tour will allow Florida- and Puerto Rico-based small businesses to seek opportunities under DHS' SBIR program, the department said Thursday.

“We are continually seeking new opportunities to engage with innovators and the SBIR Road Tour provides DHS the chance to meet directly with innovative small businesses and discuss technology needs,” said William Bryan, acting undersecretary for science and technology at DHS.

The Small Business Administration sponsors the road tour as an effort to reach out to small businesses. The road tour will feature federal agency representatives who will discuss programs and sought research areas.

DHS will visit Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico on Nov. 13 and 15, respectively, for the road tour.
