Upcoming SBIR/STTR Workshops Can Steer You Toward Millions in Research and Development Funding

Each year, the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs award billions in non-dilutive grant funding to advance and commercialize game-changing technologies. The process of getting funded by these highly competitive federal programs is complex and requires strategic proposals. The impact, however, of receiving millions in high-risk research and development funding is worth the effort.

On February 9 and 10, SBIR/STTR expert Lisa Kurek of BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting will lead two workshops at the University of Miami focusing on program eligibility, selecting the right agency and key components of a competitive proposal. She will also be available for individual consultations, offering tailored guidance to interested attendees.

The February 9 workshop will take place on the medical campus at the Don Soffer Clinical Research Center (formerly the Clinical Research Building), room 710, and on February 10 at the McArthur Engineering Annex, room 220, on the Gables campus. On both days, program overviews will be from 9 a.m. to noon, and consultations will be available from 1 to 5 p.m.

The workshops and consultations are sponsored by U Innovation, The Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting. They are free and open to University of Miami-based entrepreneurs, but registration is required. A light lunch will be provided. Click here for registration and additional information.
