Small-business owners can learn about Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) opportunities at the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) during a half-day virtual workshop Thursday, Sept. 7.
Jim Greenwood will lead the discussion during a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network webinar titled “SBIR/STTR Opportunities at the Department of Defense” from 8:30 a.m.-noon. The Wyoming SBDC Network is partnering with Manufacturing Works for this workshop. To register, go here. Registration is free.
The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Greenwood will provide helpful tips and a recommended process for developing a competitive Phase I proposal. While material is relevant to all SBIR/STTR agencies, the DOD will be emphasized.
Sean Schaub, account and project manager at Manufacturing Works, will discuss how local Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEPs) can help small businesses with cybersecurity, product design and development, supplier scouting and more throughout the life of a business.
Greenwood, co-owner of Greenwood Consulting Group Inc., is a nationally recognized trainer and proposal reviewer for the SBIR and STTR programs. He has taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states, plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, federal laboratories, SBDCs and MEPs.
Small-business owners also will have the opportunity to meet with Greenwood one-on-one for strategy sessions during the afternoon. Preference for scheduling with Greenwood will be given to Wyoming small businesses. For one-on-one scheduling, email Kelly Haigler Cornish, Wyoming SBIR/STTR Initiative manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
