AF generic

While the Air Force did not include topics in the SBIR 21.3 release, now is the perfect time to network ahead of the next round opening in November/December 2021. AFWERX and their affiliated WERX programs are hosting several FREE & ONLINE programs to define opportunities and technology fit.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ONLINE OFFERINGS WHILE YOU CAN! These online events may seem impersonal, but the unprecedented access to people, names, emails, unit definitions, problem and solution descriptions help as you explore the wide world of Air Force funding.  

Below are upcoming programs to consider as you network into a Winter 2021 solicitation.
