Commercialization: From R&D to the Market

imageThe seminar to be held on Tuesday, December 8, 2009 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm will be focused on commercialization for SBIR/STTR stage companies. Content will be applicable across technology sectors and agencies. Workshop will provide a review of SBIR/STTR program details and discuss technological innovation and commercial merit from an SBIR perspective.

The workshop will also provide detailed information on each section of a commercialization plan required for a Phase II SBIR/STTR proposal.  In addition to discussing how to write a commercialization plan, the workshop will also explore commercialization considerations from a tactical perspective.  

As most SBIR/STTR stage companies typically approach things from a technology perspective the session will address the issue of commercialization and its importance early in the development of tech-based companies and explore what entrepreneurs need to consider at this early stage.

"As many as half of Phase II awardees are unable to convert their SBIR funding R&D into products that are sold.""Many companies feel that the commercialization process is unfamiliar, outside their skill set and daunting." -.Comments from Jon Baron, former counsel to the House Small Business Committee
