NSF SBIR Workshop - Spring 2019


The NSF SBIR program is distinctive in its focus on funding companies with novel, high-risk technologies up to $1.5M. Many startups in the Bay Area fit this description and are often strong candidates for an SBIR grant. However, the SBIR program is very competitive, and crafting and properly submitting a strong proposal is often a daunting challenge, especially for first-time applicants. The goal of this workshop is to help suitable companies in the Bay Area put forth highly competitive proposals, thus increasing their likelihood of success. (For more details on the NSF SBIR program, this is a recent webinar by NSF.)


This workshop is targeting the June 2019 submission and includes:



Three 3-hour class sessions taught by a former NSF SBIR reviewer



1-on-1 office hours for personalized feedback

April 18: Keys to a strong proposal, eligiblity and required registrations, pre-submission feedback from NSF

More about the NSF SBIR/STTR program:

For 40 years, America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF has helped startups and small businesses transform their ideas into marketable products and services. The NSF focuses on high-risk, high-impact technologies — those that show promise but whose success hasn’t yet been validated — and each year, the NSF awards nearly $190 million in funding to entrepreneurs across the country. The NSF hopes to foster innovation and help create businesses and jobs in the United States, and companies that have received NSF SBIR/STTRs have since gone on to tremendous success.
