Workshop: Match Your Product to NIH Agency Mission for SBIR/STTR Success

March 2 @ 8:00 am - March 3 @ 11:30 am

| Free

Is your company/technology a candidate for federal R&D funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) SBIR/STTR programs?  The two programs award over $2.6 billion in high risk R&D funding annually to qualified small companies. Similar to other NIH grant proposals, the process can be daunting, but the impact of receiving millions in non-dilutive funding to advance your IP to the marketplace is worth the effort!

Learn more about SBIR/STTR funding from nationally recognized expert and former research scientist, Michael Kurek, Ph.D., MBA. Dr. Kurek will cover program essentials to be competitive for NIH funding. The workshop will cover:

  • Current information on the SBIR/STTR programs
  • Strategies for targeting your proposal to address the mission/requirements of the NIH
  • How to approach each section of your proposal
  • Planning your commercialization strategy
  • Writing to meet the reviewers’ expectations
  • Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them
