SBDC Webinar Provides Introduction to SBIR/STTR Programs

November 15, 2017

Small-business owners can learn what the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are and explore whether they are a good fit for their companies or products.

A Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) webinar, titled “Introduction to the SBIR/STTR Programs,” is scheduled Thursday, Nov. 30, from 2-3 p.m. This webinar will help small-business owners learn about the program eligibility requirements; discover which agencies participate; find out how the programs work; and learn about the Wyoming resources available to help them succeed. The $2.2 billion federal seed fund for these programs assists small businesses with research and to develop innovative solutions to the nation’s most pressing problems.  

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.

Kelly Haigler-Cornish, manager of the Wyoming SBIR/STTR Initiative, will present the seminar. She leads the SBIR Initiative, working with high-tech companies to access research and development funding to develop commercially viable innovations. Prior to joining the Wyoming SBDC Network, Haigler-Cornish worked at the UW Technology Transfer and Research Products Center, helping Wyoming small businesses with intellectual property.
