Win Uncle Sam’s Money (LIVESTREAM)

December 22, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

Please register by 10 pm on Tue Dec 21.
At 11 pm, we’ll email you a Zoom link to access the LIVESTREAM the next day.

Every year, the U.S. Government invests billions of dollars that it budgets to fund the R&D efforts of startups and small businesses. In fact, the National Science Foundation refers to its SBIR program as “America’s Seed Fund”.

SBIR is just one fund that the Federal Government has created to support research it believes has great promise to address important needs and be commercialized successfully. Federal agencies actually offer a wide variety of programs for this purpose, with an alphabet soup of acronyms abbreviating its many program names: SBIR, STTR, BAA, FOA, OTAs, and more!

Through this TIGER Talk, you’ll learn what each of these programs is and how you can secure some of this NON-DILUTIVE funding for your projects. Just one successful project can bring in $2.5M – or more. And, you can apply for funding through many of these programs while you still have “a day job” and while your business is still just an idea!


Our presenter, Sarah Jordan, is the founder and owner of Skuld LLC, a company focused on 3D printing and metallurgy innovation. This is the 4th business she’s owned and 6th startup she’s worked at. In the past year, Sarah has written proposals for nearly $4M, winning over $1.5M, so far! (some of these proposals are still being reviewed)
