At over $1 billion per year, the DoD’s SBIR/STTR program is by far the largest of any agency, with unmatched potential for follow-on contracting.  While all DoD topics serve warfighter needs, the diversity of technical needs present opportunities for nearly every capable, innovative company.  In this webinar, timed for the opening of the year’s largest DoD SBIR/STTR BAA, you will learn how to better know your customers, important differences among the dozen participating DoD Components, and how to best approach them. You’ll learn about background research that will give you important advantages before you even submit your proposal, and the critical importance of “Dual Use” strategies.  Most importantly, you’ll learn how key partnerships, including with universities, prime contractors, and DoD labs, can enhance your capabilities and credibility to become much more successful.   REGISTER
