Why Should You Attend?
The government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs make over $2.5 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive (i.e. free) capital available to innovative small companies annually. The process is complex with a steep learning curve, but the impact of receiving $millions is worth the effort. Information covered will include:
• An overview of what the SBIR/STTR programs fund
• Innovation Partnership’s (IPart) Proposal Assistance Programs
The program is designed to help attendees decide if SBIR/STTR funding is something they would like to seriously pursue.
