The Federal SBIR/STTR programs award over $2.4 million in high risk R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses. The process is complex with a steep learning curve, but the impact of receiving $millions in non-dilutive funding is worth the effort.

This full-day session will provide an overview of SBIR/STTR funding as well as essential information for crafting a competitive proposal that meets the mission, standards and requirements of the National Institutes of Health SBIR/STTR program. The session will be conducted by Lisa Kurek, a nationally recognized SBIR/STTR expert, and Director of the SBIR Impact NYC Program. Training will cover:

  • SBIR/STTR program purpose, eligibility requirements and sources of funding
  • Necessary registrations so you can submit
  • Practical advice on how to address the sections of the proposal
  • Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • Navigating the submission process
