Learn How to Compete for Federal R&D Funds

Small businesses often have difficulty competing with larger technology companies due to lack of capital for their research and development (R&D) work which is crucial for getting from planning to deployment stages. The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization.

Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.

The mission of the SBIR program is to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of Federal research funds in critical American priorities to build a strong national economy.

Join this webcast to:

  • Learn about the SBIR/STTR programs and how they work
  • Learn how to qualify for America’s largest seed fund for small technology firms and innovators
  • Learn where to get more information, the support you need, and how to take next steps
