About this event

Wondering how to secure non-dilutive funding to take your startup to the next level?

Join Innovate 518, Cornell University's Center for Regional Economic Advancement, and Kirk Macolini, President of InteliSpark, LLC for this workshop providing insights into the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) application process.

During the workshop, Macolini will share an overview of the SBIR/STTR programs, discuss eligibility requirements, and tell you how to use SBIR/STTR to enhance your company's value. He'll also answer questions regarding:

  • Writing and submitting a successful SBIR/STTR proposal
  • Locating additional non-dilutive funding sources
  • Applying to the SBIR/STTR Assistance Program, which can help eligible companies, based in upstate New York, hire a qualified grant writing consultant to help them develop a proposal

The event is free and open to the public, and will be held in the ETEC building on the University at Albany main campus.
