Do you have a technology that you think has commercial potential? If so, you will want to know what options are available to you, and you will need the funding to get there. This class will provide you with a high-level view of alternative avenues for commercialization and how federal funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs can be a valuable part of the process. Program essentials, such as purpose, eligibility, sources of funding, etc., will be covered. Presented by Michael Kurek, PhD, BBC Partner, who advises BBC clients in evaluating commercialization alternatives and developing plans for their technology products or services.
