The Health and Human Services (HHS) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, collectively known as America’s Seed Fund, award over $1.3 billion of non-dilutive funding every year to support early-stage small business research and development. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Small business Education and Entrepreneurial Development (SEED) office supports this funding by providing multiple programs and resources to accelerate the conversion of scientific discoveries into healthcare solutions. This session will provide an overview of small business funding, the NIH’s application and review process, and the programs and resources available to small business innovators to further their product development efforts.
