SBDC Sponsors Proposal and Accounting Workshop in Jackson

July 15, 2016

The federal government sets aside more than $2 billion annually to fund the early-stage development of new high-tech ideas being pursued by innovative small businesses.

In response, the Wyoming Entrepreneur Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is sponsoring the SBIR/STTR Phase I Proposal and Accounting workshop Tuesday, July 26, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; and Wednesday, July 27, 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m., in Room 118 at the Center for the Arts, located at 255 W. Deloney St. in Jackson.

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

“Due to funding from an SBA FAST grant, we are able to have these nationally known experts in preparing SBIR/STTR proposals here in Wyoming to help our small businesses compete in this arena,” says Cindy Unger, adviser for the SBDC. “Better than that, this two-day workshop is free of charge to Wyoming residents.”

However, participants still need to register at

Jim and Gail Greenwood will teach the workshop. The two have been involved with the SBIR program since its inception in 1983 and have taught workshops nationwide. They are the recipients of the Tibbetts Award for their contributions to SBIR/STTR outreach and education efforts, and were recognized by the Small Business Technology Council as “Champions for Small Business.”

Day one of the program will begin with a comprehensive overview of the SBIR and STTR programs. The Greenwoods then will discuss a simple, but effective four-step process to develop a Phase 1 proposal targeted to any of the participating agencies. The day will conclude with a brief overview of sample Phase 1 proposals.

Day two will delve into the perplexing world of government accounting and the SBIR/STTR cost proposal. This workshop focuses on developing an indirect rate for your company and how to apply that rate to an accurate and defensible cost proposal as part of a Phase I or Phase II proposal. Understanding these accounting details is crucial to avoid having a company lose money.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least two weeks in advance. For more information, call Kelly Haigler Cornish at (307) 766-2904.

The Wyoming SBDC Network is a business advising group of the Wyoming SBDC, Procurement Technical Assistance Center, Market Research Center and Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Initiative. The network’s mission is to help Wyoming entrepreneurs succeed.
