SBIR Training Series: Developing a Schedule & Understanding the Review Process

Writing a compelling SBIR/STTR proposal can take six weeks or longer, so step one is to prepare a realistic schedule and keep to it. This webinar will begin with guidance on the key milestones to set up as you progress from getting registered so you can submit to pushing the button on your submission before the deadline. It will also go over how different agencies manage the review process and how to be kind to reviewers with formatting and grantsmanship tips for success.
