Observer Status:
Many with Tech Seeker responsibilites are relatively new to the SBIR-STTR access opportunity and/or much less familiar with the range and diversity of the expertise of awardees. These persons may not feel quite ready to assume full Tech Seekers role at the ASSETs event. Nonetheless, they are very interested in meeting with these small firms, listening to their presentations and, by watching their more SBIR-experienced Tech Seeker colleagues, getting some sense of how they might similarly take advantage of this important resource.
      To that end, a small number of Tech Seeker Observer slots have been established. Offering some pre-event exposure and at-event opportunity, these are available on a first-come, first-served basis
