Faculty and scientists looking to apply for SBIR/STTR grants are highly encouraged to apply to the course.
You must be a team of at least 2 (or more) consisting of an Entrepreneurial Lead (can be a faculty member or undergraduate, graduate students or postdoctoral scholars who aim to move the research forward) and a Technical Lead (typically a faculty member or senior research scientist with deep and direct expertise in the core research/technology).
Our participation in the course was tremendously beneficial. As a physician scientist with no prior entrepreneurial experience, the course was an eye-opener. The emphasis on the interviewing process allowed us to determine the magnitude of the need for our delivery system, and who are our true customers.”
