SBIR-Max Workshop & Prime Contractor Speed Networking
July 20, 2009

If you have ever been a Phase I SBIR/STTR recipient (recent or otherwise), or you want to improve your Phase II and Phase III funding success rates, you should not miss this special advanced workshop. Many companies start to plan their Phase II and Phase III SBIR/STTR strategy too late. The fact is, you need to think about Phase II and Phase III as soon as (or before) you win the Phase I. With the challenges of performing the Phase I project, the time you spend to plan your Phase II and Phase III strategy must be well spent. Even if you haven’t been SBIR-active for many years, very special strategic business advantages are still yours – if you know about them and how to access them as you will learn in this session.

Far more than just $100,000 in revenues – Having an SBIR Phase I can be much, much more valuable than most have ever imagined. This workshop teaches SBIR/STTR firms to use all the very special advantages provided in SBIR/STTR funding by our Congress to acquire “megabuck” follow on awards and venture financing. If you’ve ever had an SBIR/STTR award, this will apply to you.
