SoCalBio Webinar on Tapping Non-Dilutive Funding

July 23, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Get the Best Advice on Accessing SBIR/STTR Grant Funding

About this Event

Non-dilutive funding refers to financing that does not require selling or giving away equity to raise capital. Therefore, it does not result in the dilution of the existing company owners. Examples include commercial loans, profit-sharing arrangements, foundation grants, and government SBIR & STTR grants.

This webinar will focus primarily on the latter type of non-dilutive funding, i.e., SBIR & STTR grants for biotech, Medtech, and digital health companies. The primary source of these grants is government institutions such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Defense (DoD), and Department of Energy (DoE).

join us for this Webinar to learn how to tap SBIR/STTR funding from NIH and the DoD funding to support your frirm’s research. In this workshop you will learn about:

  • Identifying the right agency to apply to
  • How various grant programs are structured
  • Submission guidelines
  • Writing a successful grant proposal
  • Examples for successful proposal writing
  • Solicitation open and closing dates
