Event description

Description

Register for this workshop to get in-depth exposure to federal grant funding opportunities and learn of resources specifically available to Tennesseans.

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive federal program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in research and development that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.

In addition, LaunchTN maintains a portfolio of resources for Tennessee-based entrepreneurial researchers to advance their commercialization efforts. These resources include Networks programs that pairs mentors with promising new companies and entrepreneurs; Microgrants that provide financial support for grant-writing assistance to Tennessee-based early-stage companies; and the SBIR Matching Fund that provides non-dilutive funding to Tennessee-based companies upon their successful federal grant award.

This workshop is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
