As all entrepreneurs know, startups need cash, and it’s not always each to come by. Also known as America’s Seed Fund, The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs provide a combined total of over $4 billion in early stage, non-dilutive funding for America’s entrepreneurs each year! Additionally, these awards are either grants or contracts (not loans or investment), which means that you as the entrepreneur don’t have to give up any equity or repay the funds so long as you complete the work in your grant. At this point you probably have questions and are wondering how to get your hands on one of these awards—this is where the OSU Advantage Accelerator can help! Register now for our February speaker series event where you’ll have the opportunity to ask an SBIR/STTR expert about application logistics, common pitfalls, and other advice to help make your SBIR/STTR proposal more competitive.
Join us on Monday, February 28th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. for a conversation with Leon Wolf, SBIR/STTR assistance coordinator at VertueLab. You’ll get to hear us ask Leon some important questions about the SBIR/STTR application process, as well as have a chance to ask him your own questions during our audience Q&A.
