Researchers, Inventors & Entrepreneurs: Bring your lunch and learn how you can tap into $2.5 billion in non-dilutive seed capital through the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
In this free session, you'll learn how you can qualify for hundreds of thousands of dollars in R&D funding from the Department of Defense that does not have to be matched or repaid. In just one lunch hour, you'll get up to speed on the SBIR/STTR programs, qualification requirements and the application process. We'll touch on ways that academic researchers can participate in these small business programs. You'll also hear about free proposal development and submission assistance that may be available to you. Of course, we'll leave plenty of time to answer your specific questions as well.The mission of the DoD SBIR/STTR program is to elicit innovative solutions from the small business community that address defense technology gaps confronting the DoD and to include technologies that will also have high commercialization potential in the private sector.
