BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting LLC is hosting “From the Sources’ Mouth” with National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Program Director and Policy Liaison, Ben Schrag, at 10-11 a.m. CDT on Thursday, March 30.
Known as America’s Seed Fund, NSF has helped startups and small businesses transform their ideas into marketable products and services.

Join this overview of the NSF SBIR program and learn, from the source, what technologies they are looking for and what’s needed to submit a successful proposal. Following the presentation, there will be ample Q&A time with the presenter.
The session is ideal for technology-based entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses familiar with the SBIR/STTR programs who want to learn more. New to SBIR/STTR? Please view their on-demand webinars before joining their “From the Sources’ Mouth” training sessions.
