Join us for an information session on the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant program with a focus on the 3 primary funding agencies supporting EdTech innovation: U.S.Dept. of Ed., the National Science Foundation (NSF), and National Institutes of Health (NIH).

“The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.”

During this session, a panel of experts will provide details about the different grant opportunities, how to apply and maximize your potential to secure a grant, and first-hand experiences of successful and unsuccessful recipients of previous grant awards.

Panelists include:

Pat Dillon, Director, MN-SBIR, Metropolitan Economic Development Association
