SAVE THE DATE: 2017 SBIR Beyond Phase II (BPII) and Mentor Protégé Training Week (MPTW)

Join us on August 14-18, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. For the first time ever the DOD Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) will combine its SBIR Beyond Phase II Conference and Mentor Protégé Training Week events.

Sponsored by OSBP, this combined event presents a great opportunity to leverage the synergies of two similar but different small business programs while meeting with key decision makers from government, academia, industry, and the small business community.


•    PLENARY SESSIONS: Get caught up on the latest policies, procedures, and practices in small business
•    BREAKOUT SESSIONS: Join military agencies as they discuss policies, practices, and capability gaps specific to their agency.
•    MATCHMAKING: Prearranged meetings between company representatives and acquisition professionals and/or prime contractors and large businesses
•    TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE: Explore technologies developed by Phase II companies, large businesses, SBIR support companies, and industry service providers
•    NUNN PERRY AWARDS: Take part in the prestigious Nunn Perry Awards as we recognized the Mentor Protégé agreements that have provided exceptional contributions to DOD.

So mark your calendars! Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with key members of the defense small business community. Stay tuned for details on registration, agenda items, and distinguished speakers. For more information please contact Christopher Walters at
