Who Should Attend: Are you an entrepreneur with Intellectual Property that has commercial prospects? Do you need money to test, develop and commercialize your idea? Have you held off research and development because of a lack of capital? Do the Venture Capital markets want too much of your potential success?
If any of these are true, our upcoming SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) seminar may be for you. The SBIR program is a ‘non-dilutive’ venture financing grant program run in three phases by 11 Federal Agencies.
Initial SBIR grants help you conduct a feasibility study of the scientific and technical merits of your idea. Later phases expand the testing and development of your IP and assist you with commercialization. These grants involve large amounts of funding. Products developed through this program have led to huge innovations in medicine, energy, defense, education, agriculture and transportation.
This seminar will be run by Mr. John
Davis, Pres. & COO of Jade Research Corp. Mr. Davis is a professional with over 30 years of federal proposal, project management and SBIR experience.
Attendees receive Jade’ Research’s 100 page SBIR workbook.
