SBIR/STTR Workshop: Proposal Preparation for NIH


  • Quinnipiac University 275 Mount Carmel Avenue Hamden, CT, 06518 United States (map)

Please join us for an intensive, two-day SBIR/STTR workshop focused on proposal preparation for the National institutes of Health (NIH). The Federal SBIR/STTR programs award over $2.6 billion in high risk R&D funding annually to qualified small businesses. The process is complex but the impact of receiving $millions in non-dilutive funding is worth the effort. 
This workshop covers all aspects of writing SBIR/STTR grants focused on life science technologies including:

  • Current information on the SBIR/STTR program
  • Strategies for targeting your proposal to meet the mission and requirements of the NIH
  • Step-by-step instruction on how to write each section of your proposal
  • Elements of a successful commercialization plan
  • How to write to meet the reviewers’ expectations
  • Navigating the process of submission
  • Common problems and pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • What to do once you learn you are going to be funded (and what to do next if you learn you are not)

Who Should Attend: Connecticut based entrepreneurs interested in SBIR/STTR funding. The workshop is free of charge and a light lunch will be provided.
