SBIR Conference in Atlanta

Just a reminder... next week, the 10th annual National Institutes of Health SBIR/STTR conference is being held in Atlanta, and it's being hosted by the Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute.

Who should attend?

  • Small businesses wanting to develop novel technology products
  • Highly motivated small business entrepreneurs and research managers
  • Small businesses interested in new NIH SBIR/STTR initiatives and program changes
  • Institutional researchers interested in partnering with small businesses on collaborative R&D projects
  • Large companies interested in developing strategic alliances with successful SBIR/STTR awardees
  • Organizations and consultants providing support to interested SBIR/STTR applicants


It's focused on NIH/biotech grants but, honestly, there should be a lot there of interest to any entrepreneur thinking of going after SBIR/STTR money. Read more at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/SBIRConf2008/index.htm.

At last count, nearly 500 people had registered! Online registration is closed, but you can register onsite with cash or check (sorry, no credit cards). Be there!
