SBIR-The best kept funding secret
Merrie London
Each year the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) funds over 2500 small businesses with over $2 billion for game-changing innovation. It is the largest federal source of seed capital for early-stage technology businesses. If you have an idea for an R&D project that you believe solves problems, has a strong market need, and would have significant impact, the SBIR program may be your “go-to” funding source. Merrie London, SBIR manager at Connecticut Innovations, will share insights into this unique federal program with an emphasis on scope and winning strategies. She will also provide information on Connecticut's matching grant resources.
