For companies in the tech space like SmartyPal or Baltimore’s SilcsBio, getting a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant can give product development and research a significant jolt.

On July 27, some reps from federal agencies are coming to town for a workshop at Villanova University on funding opportunities for scientific research.

At the free workshop, companies will get to hear from April Richards, SBIR Program Director at the U.S. Environmental Protection AgencyChris O’Gwin, SBIR/STTR Program Manager for the U.S. Department of Energy; and Charles Cleland, SBIR Program Coordinator at the U.S. Department of Agriculture on existing opportunities for startups with under 500 employees.


Here’s G. Nagesh Rao, chief technologist at the U.S. Small Business Administration on why you shouldn’t sleep on the grant program.
