Event Details

SBIR/STTR Funding Seminar

 

WHEN: Thursday March 28, 2013 9:00 am - 11:00 am.

WHERE: Murray State University Regional Campus, Hopkinsville KY

 

The Federal SBIR/STTR program offers more than $2.5 Billion in grants to small firms for high-risk R&D and product development.  The seminar will enable attendees to determine if this source of funding is right for their company and the project.  Both faculty and small business can participate in seeking federal SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) grant programs that provide about $150K - $1 M in early stage R&D funding. This is a non-dilute funding source for the company.  Eleven federal agencies participate and use this program to fund R&D that will lead early-stage technology development for commercialization.
