In this recurring workshop, teams will learn:
What is the SBIR/STTR program, which agencies offer this, and what are the requirements?
What resources are in place through the Illinois FAST Center and how do teams access said resources?
What solicitations are upcoming in the SBIR/STTR space?
After a presentation, teams will have the opportunity to ask questions from the FAST team.

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.
