Online Event


Do you have an innovative, significant technology with commercial potential?

Are you interested in or planning to apply for one of the lucrative SBIR or STTR research grants offered by the Federal Government?

Then the SBIR Bootcamp may be right for you. Open to qualified participants within the Kansas City Metro area, the 2-day Bootcamp will be taught by Julie Assel, one of the area’s top grant-writers, together with our Missouri SBDC technology development and commercialization experts, Sally Williams and Ryan Comeau. They will lead you through the process of developing an SBIR or STTR grant proposal. You will receive group and one-on-one coaching as you work through each section of the grant application. By the end of the bootcamp you will have developed an outline for your grant proposal.

$1000 micro grants may be available to qualified companies for grant-writing assistance.

More information will be available at the bootcamp. Bootcamp is a pre-requisite for grant qualification.

Bootcamp is a two day event – April 23 from 9am – 4pm AND April 24 from 9am – 2pm. Attendance on both days is required for participation.
