Winning Phase I & II SBIR/STTR Grants 2019: Beyond the Basics



1) Research Design (2) Budgeting, Accounting Audits  (3) The Commercialization Plan

Winning a Phase II SBIR/STTR grant is the leading objective of your Phase I award. Completing the technical work to prove a concept and writing your reports, while vital, are only part of what is required to succeed to Phase II. In our “BEYOND THE BASICS” workshop, we cover the vital components of both winning and managing your Phase I grant to successfully transition and be awarded a Phase II grant; develop your Phase II efficacy study and then to manage that through Phase III commercialization. This workshop is devoted to the critical issues of (a) Designing and Defending a Fundable Study Approach, (b) Phase I & II Award Criteria, (c) Accounting & Government Audits, and (d) Commercialization Plan/Business Model essentials. It covers the requisites in planning and conducting your research project to win Phase I concept and progress through Phase II efficacy. It provides a general guide to facilitate the development of a Research Design and deliver what is expected by reviewers in your proposal: Discussion of your Innovation and its Significance as well as your Research Aims/Objectives, and study approach plus how you will Transition to Commercialization. Additionally, Phase II awardees must pass a “pre-award audit” before any funds are provided. We will discuss the ten accounting and management requirements that must be completed before receiving your funds.

  1. The Five Key Success Criteria that Agencies Look for Before Awarding Phase I and II Grants
  2. Key Reasons Why Agencies Do Not Award Phase II Grants to Phase I Awardees - How You Can overcome Those Challenges
