SBIR/STTR Proposal Prep Workshop: NIH Focused 2020
January 15, 2020 @ 8:30 am - January 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm EST
Hosted by the Center for Biotechnology* with support from Empire State Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR).
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 $3 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 well-known program expert and trainer, Becky Aistrup, MBA, Principal Consultant with BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting LLC. During this 1.5-day session focused on the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Becky will cover program essentials and how to compete for funding. Training is open to the public and will include:
- Current information on the SBIR/STTR programs
- Strategies for targeting your proposal to address the mission and requirements of the NIH
- How to approach each section of your proposal
- Planning your commercialization strategy
- Writing to meet the reviewers’ expectations
- Navigating the process of submission
- Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them
- What to do once you learn you are going to be funded (and what to do next if you learn you are not)
Day One ends at 4:30 p.m. and Day Two ends at 12 p.m.
Space is Limited. Pre-registration is required.
Interested participants have the opportunity to apply for partial-sponsored follow-on counseling via one-on-one mentoring with SBIR/STTR experts. More info here. PLEASE NOTE: This training is mandatory for those who will be submitting applications for the One-on-One Training. If selected for follow-on counseling, participants will be charged a small participation fee. All additional costs will be covered by the Center for Biotechnology.
