    Los Angeles SBIR STTR Workshops 

    SBIR logoEarlier this year PortTech Los Angeles introduced a series of SBIR/STTR Workshops for university researchers, small business owners and entrepreneurs applying for government grants from the 11 Federal Agencies participating in the  Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Tech Transfer Research programs.  The Agencies participating in the program that grants over $2B annually include:  Agriculture, Commerce (NOAA and NIST), Defense, Education, Energy, EPA, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, NASA, NSF and Transportation.

    Upcoming Workshops:

    • SBIR Phase II – June 20th
    • SBIR/STTR Phase I – July 19th
    • SBIR Phase III – November (TBD) – Invitation Only

    The Workshops are presented by Dr. Marie Talnack at the PortTech Training Center in San Pedro, CA.  Marie Talnack’s career in technology transfer and business development has spanned over 25 years since the SBIR and STTR programs were first established. She has worked at four research universities and two national research laboratories as well as her own consulting firm established in 1991.  Working with more than 300 companies, she has assisted in the development of over 500 technical proposals and grants which have been leveraged into $60 million in private capital funding

    The SBIR program provides funding to small, high-tech businesses to research, design, develop, and test new technology ideas related to specific needs defined in competitive solicitations floated by the federal agencies. The program stimulates technological innovation by funding new ideas that would not otherwise be funded, and helps introduce small business solutions into the market and to meet a wide range of Government research priorities, from national defense and renewable energy systems to new medical or educational solutions.

    To participate, a company must:

    • Be a small business with 500 or fewer employees
    • Be independently owned and operated
    • Be organized for profit
    • Have its principal place of business in the United States
    • Be at least 51 percent owned by U.S. citizens or lawfully admitted permanent resident aliens

    In addition:

    • The primary employment of the principal investigator must be with the small business
    • The proposing firm must perform at least 2/3rd of the R&D work in Phase I and at least 1/2 in Phase II

    Workshop Attendees Receive:
    • Up-to-date SBIR/STTR information
    • Key submittal dates for all 11 federal agency applications
    • Additional resources and guidelines for proposal preparation
    • In-depth understanding of the SBIR scoring systems
    • Personalized match of funding topics with your technology
    • Sample workplans, sample proposals resumes and letters of support
    • Tips and tricks for preparing a winning proposal
    • One-on-one technical and financial consulting

    Advanced Registration for the workshops is required.
