What is the SBIR/STTR Proposal Lab?
The Small Business Innovation Research Program also referred to as SBIR, and the Small Business Technology Transfer program also referred to as STTR, are sometimes referred to as the Nation’s largest source of early-stage/high-risk funding for start-ups and small businesses.
The SBIR/STTR Proposal Lab combines guidance from SBIR tutorials, best-in-industry proposal training, Business Development, and Technical mentorship, expert proposal reviews, and hands-on guidance throughout the program.
We are able to provide significant discounts to companies since the SBIR/STTR Proposal Lab is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
A cohort of up to 25 companies will participate in the SBIR/STTR Proposal Lab. We will take each participant from the NSF SBIR/STTR initial Project Pitch Phase all the way through to proposal submission. Team TEDCO will conduct a series of workshops and reviews virtually from the Training Center at OST Global Solutions’ offices in Rockville, Maryland (some in-person events may resume depending on Coronavirus restrictions). Participants will receive support between sessions via a series of online portals. The SBIR/STTR Proposal Lab will culminate in the cohort’s proposal submissions projected in June 2022. Subsequent advisory services will also be available for awardees and those that want feedback on how to improve their next proposal submission.
