CTC hosted BBCetc, SBIR experts, for a well-attended webinar on January 17th. The webinar focused on the differences between typical NIH research grants and the SBIR/STTR program, which has a focused goal of the commercialization of technology. Researchers, academic leaders and small businesses should consider this non-dilutive funding program to prove feasibility of their research and ultimately impact the world with their technology.
In BBCetc’s presentation it was made clear that certain skills and expertise are necessary to considering commercialization and business topics in an SBIR/STTR proposal and that’s where CTC comes in!
CTC has a suite of programming, free to Wisconsin companies, that includes grants to fund (up to $9K) the hiring the of a grant consultant (like BBCetc), free proposal reviews providing actionable feedback, and SBIR matching grants (up to $275K) once awarded.
Don’t tackle this project alone – CTC is state and federally funded to provide FREE events, programming AND grants to Wisconsin companies pursuing SBIR/STTR funds. Don’t miss out!
