They don’t call it America’s Seed Fund for nothing. The Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs dole out $2 billion to university-based ventures every year, and their awards can be significant sources of non-dilutive funding – if you know how to craft a proposal that will win over the reviewers. University researchers, start-up founders and TTO staff must ensure their proposal has what it takes to earn the funding their projects need.

That starts with knowing what agencies such as the NSF, NIH and DoD are looking for in fundable projects and how to prepare your proposal for review. To give you the best chance of success, Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has partnered with Kristen Parmelee of PCG, Inc. — one of the country’s top SBIR/STTR experts — to bring you this critically important program:
