Businesses throughout southeastern Indiana can take part in a free workshop on Tuesday, March 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Eastern time in New Albany to learn more about how to successfully vie for federal funds that can help their company grow and compete.
The Indiana Procurement and Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), IN3 (Indiana Innovation Institute) and NavalX Midwest Tech Bridge are providing hands-on assistance to qualifying small businesses. The session will offer guidance on how to take advantage of the federal Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) programs.
The program will take place at University Center North on the Indiana University Southeast campus, located at 4201 Grant Line Road, New Albany. A campus map is available at https://www.ius.edu/about-southeast/campus-map.php.
This will be an in-person event, but there will also be an option for those who prefer to attend virtually. Those signing up for the virtual option will receive a link after they register.
The SBIR and STTR programs both offer qualifying small businesses federal funding opportunities with the goals of stimulating technological innovation, engaging small businesses to meet federal research and development needs, fostering and encouraging participation in innovation and entrepreneurship by socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses, and increasing private sector commercialization of innovations derived from federal R&D funding.
