Intensive SBIR/STTR Proposal Prep for NIH Workshop
Wed, Sep 27, 2017, 8:30 AM – Thu, Sep 28, 2017, 12:00 PM EDT
Is your life science or health tech company a candidate for federal R&D funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) SBIR/STTR programs? The two programs award over $2.6 billion in high risk R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses. The process is complex but the impact of receiving $millions in non-dilutive funding is worth the effort!
