Seed Funding for Entrepreneurs, R&D, and Startups

Oct 16 | Noon - 1:00 | EIC Auditorium

The College of Engineering and Applied Science is hosting Mark Weitz, VP of Research and Development at Kennon Products. Weitz will share how the Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funding helped grow their company form 13 employees and one engineer to 65 employees and 15 engineers and designers. With humble “garage shop roots”, Kennon has secured nearly $11M in SBIR-related funding to advance and diversify Kennon’s business and capabilities.

Join us for a free lunch and learn about the overall SBIR program. Weitz will focus on DoD SBIR opportunities including the new Open Topics where you can pitch any idea to Air Force and Navy. More DoD programs are using the SBIR open topics to move existing technologies into the military and to help them discover the "unknown-unknown".

Additonally, the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Open Topic at Air Force encourages student teams to apply.  Are you looking for funding for your senior design project and do you have a cool tech you think Air Force might need?  If yes, come to the workshop and learn how Kennon got their Open Topic SBIR Phase I.

Small businesses, graduate students, post-docs, faculty and public are invited to attend.  Weitz encourages all graduate students attending. "Graduate School is the perfect time to learn to write wining SBIR/STTR proposals," states Weitz, "with success, you can start your own business and craft a career doing the work you love."

If your company or small business has not looked at DoD before, now is the time to see how another company uses DOD SBIR funding to create and commercialize products.  Perhaps, there is a fit for your technology at DoD.

Lunch Provided (College of Engineering and Applied Science and the Wyoming SBDC Network)
