« Small Business Tax Workshop – HCC Missouri City
#BOSSUP Workshop – Entrepreneurial Mindset – HCC Missouri City »
Did you know $2 billion to $2.5 billion is granted annually to support small business innovation?
This SBIR workshop begins with some basics of the SBIR/STTR programs and then covers the process for developing a competitive proposal, and ends with an awardee panel discussion.
The workshop is suitable for newcomers to the SBIR/STTR programs, as well as those who have previously submitted proposals but have not received awards.
The SBIR program (Small Business Innovation Research) is a federal program administered by eleven U.S. federal agencies to provide early-stage Research and Development funding to small technology companies or individuals who will be developing a product and company. The STTR Program (Small Business Technology Transfer) is a similar program that supports small businesses teaming up with nonprofit research entities, such as a university.
