NSF revises SBIR/STTR Process!


America’s Seed Fund powered by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is piloting changes to the Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) proposal submission process.

The pilot replaces a recommended pre-proposal step, the Executive Summary, with a required first step, the Project Pitch.

Starting in March 2019, startups or entrepreneurs who submit a three-page Project Pitch will know within three weeks if they are a good fit for the SBIR/STTR program’s objectives of supporting innovative technologies that show promise of commercial and/or societal impact and involve a level of technical risk.

Startups or entrepreneurs can submit a Project Pitch at any time during the pilot, which runs through December 2019.

More details about the NSF’s new process are available at seedfund.nsf.gov or by contacting us at kcarter@grantmanagementassoc.com

Join our first webinar about the Project Pitch on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
