This day-and-a-half workshop is designed to assist technology start-ups and existing businesses, that have a breakthrough technology, in learning how to apply for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grants and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) to fund their R&D. This hands-on workshop is led by Ed Lahue, MBA, an innovation & technology counselor with 40 years in innovation and marketing and Dr. Veronika Redmann, a consultant/grant writer, entrepreneur, and NSF reviewer. It is an extensive “how to apply” course developed for companies with unique breakthrough technology that is NSF grant-worthy. This course will offer specific directions on how to prepare a competitive NSF Phase 1 submission. This includes articulating your technology as it relates to customer problem solving, necessary market research, project team make-up, crafting a strong technical approach, and budget considerations. The workshop includes breakout sessions so that participants can apply these principles.
