About this event


Congrats! You successfully received an SBIR/STTR award in Phase I. The objective of Phase I is to establish the technical merit, feasibility, and commercial potential of the proposed R/R&D efforts and to determine the quality of performance of the small business awardee organization prior to providing further Federal support in Phase II.

What's different in preparing a grant application for Phase II?

The objective of Phase II is to continue the Research/Research and Development efforts initiated in Phase I. Funding is based on the results achieved in Phase I and the scientific and technical merit and commercial potential of the project proposed in Phase II. Typically, only Phase I awardees are eligible for a Phase II award. SBIR/STTR Phase II awards are generally $750,000 for 2 years.

Join us for a discussion to provide you a SBIR/STTR Phase II Overview.
