Event Details

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. The
process is complex with a steep learning curve, but the impact of receiving $millions in non-dilutive funding to assist
R&D means it’s worth considering.

This virtual training provides information on commercializing research discoveries, starting a company and how to take
your technology with you. Additionally, we will cover SBIR/STTR eligibility, what federal agencies participate, the
differences between SBIR and STTR and how to determine if this type of funding makes sense for your technology.
