Join us Tuesday, June 19, 2018, from 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM for a free workshop on developing proposals for the Small Business Innovation Research grants program!
The Fort Valley State University Cooperative Extension and University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, in collaboration with the Regional Rural Development Centers and USDA-NIFA, will be hosting a workshop to introduce exciting opportunities with the USDA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. These SBIR Grants offer you the opportunity to receive funding to fully research and explore your new technology or product idea.
The USDA SBIR program offers competitively awarded grants up to $100,000 to qualified small businesses to support the growth of research and ideas into products and services that could lead to significant public benefit in agriculture and community development.
Whether you’re an established business, aspiring innovator, or even if you’ve applied for SBIR grant funding in the past, this workshop can help you get set-up for success.
Come, learn, grow, and gain a better understanding of the program, the chance to meet
with experts and secure a personal proposal consultant, on-site access to laptops to set-up all
required registration information, including a DUNS number. The Fort Valley State
University Cooperative Extension and University of Georgia Cooperative Extension will
support you throughout the process – from the very first step, through your final
Registration is required by Friday, June 15th to attend this free workshop. Register at bit.ly/FVSUusdaSIBR
