SBIR/STTR Grant Training Workshops

Since 1991, NHIRC awardees have received more than $32 million in federal grants. Each federal agency is required to set aside funds from their research and development budgets for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants, and over $2 billion in federal funding is available to stimulate technology innovation and commercialization in the U.S. In these workshops, we help you get some insight into what these grants are all about and develop and strengthen your proposals.

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants are for companies with fewer than 500 employees.

All workshops are presented by
BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting.
