In this course, we’ll lead you through – and make sense of – the perplexing world of the SBIR/STTR cost proposal, and how to keep records to the government’s satisfaction when you win an SBIR or STTR award.
We show you how to develop an indirect rate, we talk about what to expect in the way of government audits, and help you with government accounting terminology. While aimed at SBIR/STTR competitors, this is a one-of-a-kind workshop that has proven valuable for any applicant for or recipient of government contracts and grants.
Presented by: Jim Greenwood. Jim Greenwood and his wife, Gail, have been advocates of SBIR and STTR since their origination because we saw the value and opportunity for small and start-up companies to get much needed capital for technology-based product development without the need to repay or give up equity for it. The Greenwoods have taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, federal laboratories, SBDCs, and MEPs. In addition to offering SBIR/STTR training, the Greenwoods provide applicants with critiques of draft proposals before they are finalized and submitted for funding. They have performed more than 1,100 such reviews over the past decade and have always been able to offer suggestions that made the proposals stronger contenders for SBIR/STTR funding. Jim Greenwood has served as a commercialization reviewer for National Science Foundation’s SBIR and STTR programs, and is a coach for applicants participating in Dept. of Energy’s Phase 0 program for newcomers to SBIR/STTR. firstname.lastname@example.org, www.g-jgreenwood.com
