Innovation Funding for Your Small Business

Fri 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Topic: Start-up Assistance

R&D funding for small businesses is challenging to find but there is a federal funding program that invites companies to use the funds to de-risk technology. The Federal SBIR/STTR programs award over $3.7 billion in R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses. The process is complex with a steep learning curve, but the impact of receiving millions in non-dilutive funding is worth the effort. Attend this webinar and find out more about these programs and how they can provide a source of R&D funding between the initial development of your innovative idea and proof that it has potential in the marketplace. Learn about SBIR/STTR eligibility requirements, which of the 11 participating agencies best fits your technology, how to compete and how to get started. Hear about real Wisconsin businesses that have tapped this fund and moved their company or technology to the next stage. Plus, find out about the many resources available to assist you in your proposal development. Join us at our 10/7 webinar from 12:00 – 1:00 PM.
