SBIR/STTR proposal preparation workshop in Lexington Oct. 7-8
The SBIR-STTR Program
This fiscal year, 11 federal agencies will award more than $2.5 billion to small and start-up firms that perform innovative, high-risk R&D and commercialize the resulting technologies. These awards will be made through the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Businesses and entrepreneurs are required to submit high quality, competitive proposals to get a slice of this money.
SBIR-STTR proposal writing is different than the traditional government grant proposal. Learn the secrets of winning a grant under the Federal SBIR-STTR programs (up to $100,000 Phase I and up to $750,000 Phase II, depending upon the federal agency). Learn about the Kentucky SBIR-STTR Matching Funds Grant Program. Learn about the Kentucky Phase Zero and Double Zero Grants Program (up to $4,000).
