Join our team of SBIR experts and the FAST (Federal and State Technology) Center of Illinois for an SBIR/STTR webinar event from 1:00-2:00 PM on Tuesday, September 26.
Last November, the state of Illinois announced the SBIR/STTR Phase I Match Program, which provides up to $50,000 to Illinois companies who have received an SBIR or STTR Phase I proposal. Roland, who has assisted several companies with their applications, will provide an overview of the requirements and procedures for applying, will provide guidance on the most common questions he has encountered, and will leave ample time for questions from participants.
Our presenter will be Roland Garton, President and Lead Consultant of Garton Consulting Services, Inc. He has over four decades of experience with grant development, government contracting, program and project management, training and documentation, and program administration. Roland has written and advised on scores of successful SBIR proposals worth several million dollars. He has also managed several projects resulting from successful SBIR proposals. In addition, he helps startups get up and running with bookkeeping and timekeeping systems, invoices and Incurred Cost Proposals, and preparation of federal audits.
After the presentation, teams will have the opportunity to ask questions from the FAST team. Office Hours are also available by signing up online.
This is a free, virtual event, but registration is required. The link to the webinar will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration. Recording Notice: By registering for this webinar, you acknowledge and agree that it will be recorded and shared online for public viewing.

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.
