Federal Programs to Fund Innovative Small Businesses: SBIR/STTR 101 and IPart Information Session

The government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs make over $2.5 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive (i.e. free) capital available to innovative small companies annually. The process is complex with a steep learning curve, but the impact of receiving $millions is worth the effort. The program is designed to help attendees decide if SBIR/STTR funding is right for them.

Please note: There is no charge to attend this session; however, space is limited.
