Securing SBIR/STTR Funding Through NSF

February 3, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs provide an opportunity for businesses to tap into non-dilutive federal funding to conduct research and development on promising new innovations and technologies. With $3 billion available annually, the programs are a source of seed capital for early stage companies. SBIR/STTR funding can also serve as a pathway to equity financing by allowing businesses to demonstrate feasibility of new technologies and move toward commercialization. This workshop will provide a general overview of SBIR/STTR funding with a focus on strategies specific to securing SBIR/STTR funding through the National Science Foundation (NSF). Topics covered will include: 

• An overview of the SBIR and STTR programs

• How to determine if your innovation is a good fit for SBIR/STTR funding
• How to search SBIR/STTR solicitations and topics
• Difference between SBIR and STTR
• Steps to preparing a SBIR/STTR proposal
• Tips for increasing your success in securing SBIR/STTR funding
