The process toward winning an SBIR award starts far in advance of funding opportunity announcements. Firms - especially start ups - need to be prepared to convince government agencies they are capable of producing an innovative product as well as running a business.
Innovation Spotlights will be individual advising sessions culminating in a "practice pitch" session before a panel of advisors and resource partners. The goal of the Innovation Spotlight is to prepare firms for investment opportunities, such as SBIR funding, as well as promote and highlight the innovators in our state.
