SHARPhub Intensive Workshop: SBIR/STTR Proposal Prep for NIH

March 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm


Is your biotech idea or project a candidate for federal R&D funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs? The two programs award over $2.6 billion in high risk R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses. The process is complex but the impact of receiving $millions in non-dilutive funding is worth the effort!

Learn more about SBIR/STTR funding from nationally recognized expert, Becky Aistrup, SHARPhub PI and Managing Partner of the SBIR consulting company, BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting. During this session focused on the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Becky will cover program essentials and how to compete for funding. Training will include:

  • Current information on the SBIR/STTR programs in general and the NIH program in particular
  • How to approach each section of your proposal
  • Planning your commercialization strategy
  • Writing to meet the reviewers’ expectations
  • Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them

Feedback from 15 years of attendees has overwhelming endorsed this session as a critical component in successful proposal development. Training is in Rm G201 (map)
