Are you an innovator with an early-stage technology that has commercial potential? Please join U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SBIR/STTR Program Manager, Dr. Eileen Chant, on October 31 at 1 PM CT for a deep dive into the DOE SBIR/STTR Programs. DOE SBIR/STTR provides early-stage, nondilutive R&D funding for small businesses to develop their technology and commercialize it. Come learn about the surprising breadth of topics funded by DOE SBIR/STTR! Additionally, we will discuss how to access DOE SBIR/STTR application and awardee assistance programs, such as TABA, and what you need to be considering now regarding commercialization and partnering.

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.
