SBDC Webinar to Help Small Businesses Secure SBIR Grants

November 1, 2016

The federal government sets aside more than $2 billion annually to fund early-stage development of new high-tech ideas being pursued by the nation’s innovative small firms. The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs focus on funding high-risk, high-payoff projects that have significant commercial potential. 

Kelly Haigler Cornish, program manager of the Wyoming SBIR/STTR Initiative, will lead a webinar, titled “Your SBIR Toolbox: Wyoming Resources to Help Small Businesses Win SBIR Grants,” Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 2-3 p.m. Haigler Cornish will discuss the resources Wyoming has available to help small businesses take advantage of these federal research dollars. 

The Wyoming Entrepreneur Small Business Development Center (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.

Additionally, this webinar will provide an overview of these resources, including programs to help businesses through all phases of the application process; recorded webinars; upcoming workshops; and the people who are willing and able to help.
