Whether your company has 25 employees or 500, you might be eligible to compete for a slice of more than $2.6 billion in non-dilutive R&D grants and contracts awarded annually to innovative small companies by 11 federal agencies through the SBIR and STTR programs. It’s generally (mistakenly) believed that these two programs …Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) … are only for early-stage companies. But if your company is involved in doing things like:
- High-risk/high-reward projects that do not meet the criteria for internal funding
- Development of a new technology that is in-licensed
- Evolving a new product idea that is being jointly developed with another company
…you may be able to use the SBIR/STTR programs to supplement your internal R&D budget or to partially fund diversification into new business areas.
In this informative program, learn how your innovation and commercialization experience can give you an edge over companies that are still developing their first product or service.
Training will be held in Room C406 of the Taubman Student Service Center (Bldg. #1) at the Lawrence Technological University. Use Parking Lot C or D (map)
