The Federal SBIR/STTR programs award over $2.6 billion 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 session will provide an overview of SBIR/STTR funding, discuss eligibility requirements, and help participants determine whether or not they should take the next steps in pursuing this compelling source of funding.
