Schoolcraft College APEX Accelerator – SBIR/STTR with BBCetc
March 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am
Find out how the government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs can provide a source of R&D funding between the initial development of your innovative idea and proof that it has potential in the marketplace.
The two programs make over $4 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive capital available to innovative small companies annually!
Join our expert, Amanda Barnhart from BBCetc, in this virtual workshop to learn what it takes to participate in the programs. We’ll review, eligibility requirements, participating agencies, the differences between SBIR and STTR, common misconceptions and more! This training is designed to provide enough information for attendees to determine if they would like to seriously pursue proposal development and provides the tools to help begin the process.
