Michigan Ave. in Kalamazoo. This training will help tech entrepreneurs and businesses prepare winning proposals. Through the SBIR/STTR programs, 11 federal agencies make over $2 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive capital available to fund R&D at innovative small companies annually. DoD’s annual program budget is $1.2 billion and DoE’s is $150 million. The full-day training session will be led by Michael Kurek, PhD, BBCetc partner. Attendees will learn essential information for crafting a competitive SBIR/STTR proposal that meets the unique requirements of the two agencies. It provides detailed instruction on the ins and outs of preparing a proposal, including both technical and commercialization plans, and navigating the often complicated submission process. The program will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $75 for companies based in Michigan and $150 for companies based elsewhere. There will also be a class Sept. 19 in Lansing on proposals for the National Institutes of Health. For more information email info@bioconsultants.com or call (734) 930-9741.
