New CTC Program - SBIR Ready

The CTC’s SBIR Ready Program aims to transform your customer discovery learning into a winning technical proposal for federal SBIR/STTR programs.

Participants will receive dedicated time with a grants consultant experienced in preparing SBIR/STTR proposals.
This series of four 3-hour workshops will help you:

  • Evaluate your project for the various funding agencies.
  • Develop a proposal and viable team strategy.
  • Learn to be competitive in the SBIR world.
By the end of this short course, we expect you will be in strong position to take advantage of this $2.5 billion federal program.

Check back in January for more information about this exciting, hands-on program, or email Margaret Ramey today.
