Launch TN: Workshop: SBIR/STTR Resources for Entrepreneurial Researchers

March 4, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Register for this workshop to get in-depth exposure to federal grant funding opportunities and learn of resources specifically available to Tennesseans.

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a highly competitive federal program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in research and development that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.

In addition, LaunchTN maintains a portfolio of resources for Tennessee-based entrepreneurial researchers to advance their commercialization efforts. These resources include:

  1. Networks programs that pair mentors with promising new companies and entrepreneurs;
  2. Microgrants that provide financial support for grant-writing assistance to Tennessee-based early-stage companies; and
  3. the SBIR Matching Fund that provides non-dilutive capital to Tennessee-based companies upon their successful federal grant award.

There will be the opportunity to sign up for one-on-one meetings with an SBIR consultant, to be held immediately following the workshop. More details will be provided.

Please direct questions about this workshop to allie@launchtn.org.

This workshop is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
