Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization. Eleven Federal Agencies participate in the SBIR program (5 in STTR).
There are many differences between these agencies that are important to be familiar with in order to increase your competitiveness.
- mission of the agency,
- R&D interests,
- grant vs. contract mechanism,
- proposal format,
- calendar of solicitation release and proposal deadlines, and
- communication with program managers.
This full-day session will demystify these differences between agencies and allow you to speak one-on-one with individual agency program managers.
Also, receive guidance on Phase 1 proposal preparation as well as commercialization plan development, an integral component of the program.
