Wyoming Innovation Road Tour To Stop In Cheyenne

A statewide tour of Wyoming’s community colleges is stopping at Laramie County Community College next week to bring funding and business assistance resources to entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators. The Wyoming Innovation Road Tour will be held at the LCCC Clay Pathfinder Building in Room 409 on Wednesday, April 25 from 1-3 pm. This event will deliver information about programs available to fund technology advancements and also provide an opportunity to meet with successful technology entrepreneurs in Wyoming.


The Wyoming Innovation Road Tour focuses on funding available through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Successful applicants can receive $500,000 to $1 million to bring their products to market. The Wyoming SBIR/STTR Initiative (WSSI) is available to Wyoming residents to help them get a piece of the $2.5 billion offered by the federal government through these grants each year. Attendees will also be able to receive commercialization assistance from the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network, the U.S. Small Business Administration and other University of Wyoming and Wyoming Business Council partners.


Hear about the personal experiences of Wyoming technology entrepreneurs who have found success through these programs. Teresa Nealon, President and Founder of Engineered Salinity (ESal) will be one of the presenters at the Cheyenne stop.
