Join Prescience International for an informative presentation by leadership from NCI’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, and apply to meet one-on-one with the speakers for a private discussion on the funding opportunities currently available for entrepreneurs.
The Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program is a critical source of non-dilutive financing for early stage companies, providing over $2 billion annually to develop next generation technologies. New legislation signed on December 31, 2011 introduced exciting changes that will increase the funding levels dedicated to the program and expand eligibility to small businesses that are majority-owned by multiple venture capital operating companies, hedge funds, or private equity firms. These initiatives help fill the gap in the availability of early stage funding created when investors and strategic partners move towards clinical-stage investments. SBIR funds serve as a key bridge between initial angel funding and more significant angel capital, venture capital, or strategic partnerships.
Hear from the Director of National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) SBIR Development Center on what this new legislation can mean for your company’s funding opportunities as well as learn valuable information on NCI’s other initiatives including the NCI SBIR Bridge Award ($3M awards where NCI co-invests with private investors), and the NCI Investor Forum (connecting innovative SBIR awardees with top tier investors and partners).
Selected companies may also have the opportunity to set up a private meeting with individuals from the NCI team.
