When submitting an SBIR or STTR Phase I or Phase II application, don’t leave money on the table!

TABA is a new program that gives SBIR/STTR companies funding over and above the SBIR/STTR grant to use for commercialization assistance services. The application process can be complex, and the program is still a mystery to many TTOs and university start-ups, but this workshop will reveal the details and offer practical insights into the TABA funds now available to SBIR/STTR Phase I and Phase II applicants. We’ll cover the primary purpose of TABA funds, what the funds can and cannot be used for, how to engage with a TABA vendor, and how to ensure your application includes this little-known additional funding stream.

Join Kristen Parmelee, President of the Parmelee Consulting Group, Inc. for this insightful distance learning program:

Accessing Technical and Business Assistance (TABA) Funding for SBIR/STTR Companies

This program will outline how different federal agencies participating in the SBIR/STTR program want you to request the funds, how much is available for applicants, what supporting documentation is required, selection of providers of TABA services, and how to ensure your SBIR/STTR companies don’t miss out on this extra non-dilutive cash.

Here’s a brief look at the agenda:

  • How TABA works, and what the rules are for applicants
  • Allowable uses for and limitations of TABA funds
  • Funding amounts available
  • Guidelines for requesting TABA funds for a range of federal agencies participating in the SBIR/STTR program
  • Examples of how to successfully integrate TABA services into your project plan and proposal
  • Providers of TABA services
