Intensive SBIR/STTR Proposal Prep for NIH Workshop

09/27/2017 @ 8:30 am - 09/28/2017 @ 12:00 pm

Is your life science or health tech company a candidate for federal R&D funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) SBIR/STTR programs? The two programs award over $2.6 billion in high risk R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses. The process is complex but the impact of receiving $millions in non-dilutive funding is worth the effort!

Learn more about SBIR/STTR funding from nationally recognized expert and consummate trainer, Lisa Kurek, program director for SBIR Impact NYC. During this 1.5-day session focused on the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Lisa will cover program essentials and how to compete for funding. Training is open to the public and will include:

  • Information about eligibility for the SBIR Impact NYC program and how to apply
  • SBIR/STTR program basics
  • NIH SBIR/STTR program specifics
  • How to approach each section of your proposal
  • Planning your commercialization strategy
  • Writing to meet the reviewers’ expectations
  • Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them

Feedback from 15 years of attendees has overwhelming endorsed this session as a critical component in successful proposal development.

Day One begins ends at 4:30 p.m. and Day Two ends at noon.
Training will be in the 2nd Floor Greenberg Auditorium (directions)

PLEASE NOTE:  This training is mandatory for those who will be submitting applications for Cycle 2 of the 2017-18 SBIR Impact Program.

The session is provided by SBIR Impact NYC, an initiative of NYCEDC designed to enhance the competitiveness of SBIR/STTR proposals among NYC-based life sciences and healthcare technology companies.
