This day and a half workshop is designed to assist technology start-ups and existing businesses 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 Dr. Veronika Redmann, a consultant/grant writer, entrepreneur, and NSF reviewer. It is an extensive “how to apply” course developed for companies that have a 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 how to articulate your technology as it relates to customer problem solving, necessary market research, project team make-up, crafting a strong technical approach, and budget considerations.
