Non-Dilutive Funding for Early-Stage Life Sciences Companies and Beyond
Join us to explore ways to maximize funding for science companies from non-dilutive funding sources such as NIH, DOD SBIRs (Small Business Innovation Research and other federal and private sources. Learn about successful strategies for building a multi-submission strategy and academia-industry collaborations in the pursuit of non-dilutive grants and contracts from SBIR $100K awards to large-scale collaborative funding $10M and more to support biomedical research development. Ram May-Ron, Managing Partner of FreeMind Group (www.freemindconsultants.com), will examine the challenges and offer insightful tips to facilitate effective collaborations that lead to funding success.
The discussion will include consortia, center, and/or program mechanisms from major biomedical sponsors such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense (DoD) and academic-industry partnerships that seek sponsored research funding via Small Business (SBIR and STTR) and other programs.
