Get Non-Dilutive federal Funding

At least half of the startups in our ecosystem are, or have been, fueled by federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants. Phase 1 SBIRs can provide $225K and Phase 2 more than $1.5M. Applications are reviewed by panels of industry and academic scientists. Framing your R&D for this readership is crucial to success, as is making sure you dot all the i's and cross the t's and submit by the deadline with plenty of time in case you've made an inadvertent error. Ready to get started? Take our Spring 2018 SBIR Workshops, available at UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco.
