There’s a wealth of grant money available to researchers through the government’s SBIR program. The program can provide up to $150,000 in Phase I grant money and up to $1,000,000 in Phase II grant money. What’s more, through the SBIR Acceleration and Commercialization Program from Connecticut Innovations (CI), awardees can receive matching grants of up to $30,000, allowing researchers to gather additional data, protect intellectual property, conduct market research and more. Qualifying companies may apply for up to two of these CI grants per year.
The event will offer expert advice and insight on how innovators can access Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants and matching funds.
