SBIR/STTR: ABCs/Introduction
The government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs make over $4 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive capital available to innovative small companies annually. If you are considering pursuing SBIR or STTR funding, the first step is to learn what it takes to be eligible and then determine which of the 11 participating agencies best fits your technology. This session will give you basic information to determine if this is a path you would like to seriously pursue.

Communicating with DoD
The DoD SBIR and STTR programs offer a wide range of opportunities for small firms to address military needs in just about every technology area. Since DoD is a procuring agency, companies have the unique opportunity to solve problems identified by the SBIR solicitations and ultimately sell products to the Defense Department. This webinar will provide a brief look at how SBIR/STTR projects fit into the DoD’s procurement process, and how you can “speak their language” to improve your chances of winning Phase I and Phase II contract awards.
