Our team of SBIR experts of the FAST (Federal and State Technology) Center at Illinois will offer office hours from 3:00-5:00pm CT every Wednesday, to answer your questions about the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
In this recurring office hour, teams can ask about the SBIR/STTR proposal process, which agencies fit well, and ways to enhance their SBIR/STTR proposal packages. Bring your questions, and get them answered.
To schedule a half hour session during office hours, please email Roland Garton (firstname.lastname@example.org).

This program is open to all entrepreneurs in the State of Illinois seeking to access SBIR/STTR grant funding.
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR and STTR enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization. By including qualified small businesses in the nation's R&D arena, high-tech innovation is stimulated, and the United States gains entrepreneurial spirit as it meets its specific research and development needs.
