Accessing Federal R&D Funding from America’s Largest Seed Fund

Workshop Saturday | 9:30–11 am | Room 264

Join us to gather valuable insight into the federal Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) program which sets aside over $2.5B in early stage funding every year for small businesses conducting the R&D necessary to commercialize new products, processes, or services. Come listen to our distinguished panel, Kay Aikin of Introspective Systems, Hari Palani of UNAR Labs and Chris Osgood of Montalvo and learn if the SBIR/STTR program is right for your company and what it takes to write competitive proposals to gain up to $1.250M for your technology. This panel serves as an introduction to the program and gets you ready for the SBA’s SBIR/STTR Road Tour where program managers from 11 federal agencies come to Maine on August 24th.
