How to Access Non-dilutive Federal Funding

Event Description


As the largest and most important source of federally-funded early stage R&D funding, and backed by the Small Business Administration, the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program has an annual budget of over $3.3 Billion.

Taking zero equity, SBIR projects have all project costs covered – direct and indirect costs. Between all agencies over $41 Billion, 70,000 patents, 700 public companies, and 450k+ scientists have been devoted to support the country’s most innovative ideas.

From the Department of Defense to the National Science Foundation, including the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Energy and many others, this webinar will explain the differences between each agency’s SBIR program, highlighting the challenges, opportunities and hopefully the best match for your project.
