A must for SBIR Companies!
The Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation place great emphasis on the successful commercialization of technologies funded through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. This workshop will help increase your ability to successfully commercialize your SBIR/ STTR funded technologies as you move from Phase I to Phase II, and finally to Phase III. Each agency will ask you to articulate your commercialization plans in greater detail as they increase the amount of funding that they provide for your technology development. Understanding the commercialization plan requirements of each agency and how to address them is therefore vital to your success.
Schedule for both days:
8:30 am: Registration
9:00 am - 12:00 pm: Workshop
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm: Lunch

Split into two half day workshops, Day 1 will focus on the Department of Energy requirements.

Day 2 will focus on the commercialization requirements of the National Science Foundation.
