Postponed! Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR): Critical Programs for Life Sciences Innovation

Thursday, Sep 22, 2022
1:00—2:00pm
Virtual

We regret to inform you that we have postponed the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR): Critical Programs for Life Sciences Innovation on Thursday, September 22. 

Thank you for your understanding!  We are still offering life sciences companies the opportunity to sign up for a one-on-one meeting with NCI SBIR Program Director, Michael Weingarten, to discuss your eligibility for support from the NCI SBIR Development Center.  Contact Jennifer Jones Paton, Consultant for CBSA, jjones@cobioscience.com.

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are a critical source of non-dilutive financing for early-stage Colorado life sciences companies. They contribute to a strong economy at the federal and state level. Most importantly, they advance breakthroughs that reinforce America’s global leadership in science and technology.

CBSA continues to advocate for the reauthorization of the SBIR/STTR Programs. Without action by Congress, the programs will expire on September 30, 2022. Allowing even a short disruption of these programs could have negative consequences for high-tech small businesses that thrive on stability and predictability to budget and plan.

At this event, you’ll hear about CBSA’s efforts, hear the reauthorization perspective from the NCI SBIR Development Center, and learn how you can engage!

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) SBIR Development Center is a partner of the SBIR/STTR programs and provides funding, networking, and mentoring support for small businesses developing innovative cancer technologies.

NCI SBIR Development Center’s Director Michael Weingarten will go over fundamental information on NCI SBIR/STTR funding, as well as commercialization resources and application tips. At the event, you will learn about:

  • SBIR/STTR eligibility requirements
  • NIH SBIR/STTR process and new cancer-focused funding opportunities from NCI
  • NCI SBIR/STTR initiatives such as the I-Corps at NIH Entrepreneurship Program, Applicant Assistant Program, etc.
  • Practical strategies on how to successfully submit competitive research proposals

During the roundtable, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a one-on-one meeting with NCI SBIR Program Director, Michael Weingarten, to discuss your eligibility for support from the NCI SBIR Development Center.
