Join our team of SBIR experts and the FAST (Federal and State Technology) Center of Illinois for a SBIR 101 event from 12:00-1:00pm on Thursday, August 25.

This webinar will include a brief general overview of the SBIR program, and will then shift to an overview of the USDA SBIR program specifically. Attendees will learn high-level strategies to craft a competitive SBIR/STTR proposal that meets the unique requirements of the USDA and navigate the complicated submission process. The presenter will be Heidi C. Platt of Platinum Grants & Proposals, LLC, a member of the FAST Center of Illinois consultant team.

This is a free, virtual event, but registration is required. The link to the webinar will be emailed to you upon completion of the registration form.

After the presentation, teams will have the opportunity to ask questions from the FAST team.

Office Hours are also available weekly.

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.
