Would you like to know how to gain $1 million in funding for your new technology startup? Each year, Congress funds the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs to support the research and development of new technology-related products or innovative new services. These programs are the federal government’s largest small business research and development (R&D) grant programs with over $2 billion being awarded to entrepreneurs and small businesses annually. Over $1 million can be awarded per business to develop new technology ideas.
Join us for our June Learning Lunch where our guest speaker Chad Hardaway, Technology Commercialization Consultant with the SCSBDC, will inform entrepreneurs and small business owners about the availability of these funds which will include a review of the following: eligibility requirements, strategies for developing a successful grant proposal, recent congressional changes to the SBIR and STTR Programs, and resources available in South Carolina to help entrepreneurs and businesses prepare a SBIR/STTR application.
