QB3 Offering Workshops on Small Business Grants
It is the desire of most entrepreneurs in the field of science to land a grant from the U.S. Small Business Innovation Research program. But applying for a SBIR grant can be challenging. For the last three years, QB3 has been offering workshops for entrepreneurs wanting to start a science research program. The workshops teach them how to successfully file for these coveted government grants.
For new companies in the field of science, start-up costs can be expensive. Government funding not only helps to pay for prototypes and other start-up costs, but it paves the way for these businesses to procure other venture capital funding. Landing a SBIR grant can mean a difference between make or break when it comes to moving forward and growing the company.
QB3 offers three SBIR workshops a year. Sessions generally run from January through March. Start-ups interested in signing up may apply online.
