Each year, over $2.3 Billion in Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) grants are set‐aside for small technology companies with under 500 employees, or individual entrepreneurs who form a company, to conduct early-stage Research and Development (R&D) of their products, services or processes. Are you ready to fund your tech dream?

 

You should attend an SBIR/STTR class at the Maryland PTAC if:

  • You’re an entrepreneur with an idea that has commercial prospects

  • You need money to test, develop and commercialize your idea

  • You’ve held off research and development due to a lack of capital

  • Venture Capital markets want too much of your potential success

  • You’re a US-based firm with under 500 employees.

 

If any of these are true, our upcoming Small Business Innovation Research/Small business Technology Transfer Research (SBIR/STTR) seminars will be for you.
