Join our team of SBIR experts and the FAST (Federal and State Technology) Center of Illinois for an SBIR/STTR webinar event from 1:00-2:00pm on Tuesday, April 18.
This webinar will review the program rules and eligibility requirements, outline company expectations upon award, and cover critical elements for building a team. We will also cover key elements of a Phase I project, tips to start sketching out your project budget, and strategies for developing a successful plan for submission. Finally, this session will provide attendees with a brief overview of some useful free online tools and resources to help during the proposal preparation process.
Our presenter will be Kris Parmelee of the Parmelee Consulting Group, Inc., and a member of the FAST Center of Illinois consultant team. Kris is a proud graduate of Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA). She started her career at an Indianapolis-based nonprofit in program development and management. After gaining initial experience in fund raising, Kris launched her own venture in 2000 with a focus on private foundation and federal grants. In 2005, she expanded her experience to include SBIR/STTR and for the past five years, has focused almost exclusively on SBIR/STTR and project management services.
After the presentation, teams will have the opportunity to ask questions from the FAST team. Office Hours are also available by signing up online.

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.
