Attention startups, small businesses, and entrepreneurs: The National Science Foundation (NSF) is now soliciting proposals for its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, which means that money is on the table for innovators undertaking cutting-edge engineering and scientific R&D.
A key initiative of the NSF, the SBIR program aims to increase the commercialization of private sector innovations and leverage them to meet federal R&D needs. The program covers a broad range of technologies with high commercial potential — from biomedical and nanotech, to semiconductors, IoT, and more — and offers generous proof-of-concept and feasibility grants to some 400 companies every year. But first you have to apply.
Join us and hear all about NSF funding opportunities and how to position your company for a grant. Learn everything you need to know to succeed at a Q&A following the presentation with a senior NSF executive and a former grant winner:
• Qualifications and eligibility — who’s a good fit?
• Technologies and R&D areas targeted for funding.
• How to submit a proposal and when.
• Ben Schrag, Ph.D., Sr. Program Dir., Small Business Innovation Research, NSF
• Ann Carney Nelson, COO, Inpria Corp. (former NSF grant recipient)
• Cheryl Turk (Moderator), Sr. Program Mgr., Silicon Innovation Forum, SEMICON West
The program distributed $170M to small businesses and early-stage innovators last year. To see how to get your share, register today.
