CTNext is sponsoring a webinar to help early-stage startup companies learn the basics of applying for SBIR/STTR funding. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) are two highly competitive federal programs designed to support research that leads to the commercialization of research in several technological areas. While the rewards are significant, the process can be daunting. CTNext has a program specifically designed to help companies determine whether they may qualify for SBIR/STTR, and assist them as they navigate through the application process. This webinar is a recommended first step.
Megan Varnum, Ph.D, Principal Consultant with BBC Entrepreneurial Training and Consulting, has a wealth of experience leading biological technologies on the path to commercialization. As CEO of her own company, she earned STTR funding from the National Cancer Institute. As an EIR at Michigan State University, she helped many researchers translate their work into commercial technologies and shepherded several through the SBIR/STTR process.
