Event Details

As it gets harder to find funding to move your innovation from the bench to the marketplace, small business grants and contracts are more important than ever. Help increase your competitive edge by joining us for our upcoming SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research)/STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) workshop.  This is open to all researchers, postdocs and inventors interested in securing funding to help develop your research for commercialization.  The SBIR/STTR Proposal Preparation Workshop begins with an overview of the programs and then takes you through a simple but comprehensive four-step process for developing a credible and competitive Phase 1 (up to $150,000) proposal. The day concludes with an overview of Phase 2 of the programs, with tips for companies preparing Phase 2 (up to $1 million) proposals. The workshop will include an emphasis on NIH and NSF applications. SBIR is dedicated to fostering and encouraging participation in innovation and entrepreneurship by women and socially or economically disadvantaged persons.  Sponsored by the Collaboratory for Women Innovators.  Questions?

Collaboratory for Women InnovatorsThe Collaboratory for Women Innovators seeks to inspire, educate, and empower women to attain leadership in all phases of the innovation lifecycle. We offer a variety of programs and experiences to support different goals for participants at various stages of their personal and professional development. The genesis for the Collaboratory developed as an outgrowth of the successful Empowering Women in Technology Startups program (EWITS). Ewits began in 2012 and provides experiential hands-on entrepreneurial training and skills. The Collaboratory was originally envisioned as a next step in the entrepreneurial process to further support women starting their own companies. However, the mission has expanded to also include focus on increasing participation of female inventors, as well as providing opportunities for women who, although not currently actively pursuing a business startup, may be interested in learning more about innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership, as well as connecting with other like-minded people.Wanda Eugene at weugene@ufl.edu
