Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Webinar
Thursday, February 16, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us on Zoom for this event, which is designed to introduce technology start-ups to how they might fund R&D through Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grants. This is an introduction to the topic that has been developed for startups and faculty that are new to seeking grant funds and is not a “how to apply” course. This course will also offer participants a list of additional resources for assistance on how to apply for an SBIR grant.
