Omaha, Nebraska – Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) and its Innovation and commercialization of technology The program presents two series for entrepreneurs with innovations that serve the agricultural sector and support rural development, and entrepreneurs who meet the needs of the Department of Defense (DoD).
The Science, Agriculture and Energy (SAgE) series is built on a group of webins delivered in 2020, said Josh Nicol Caddy, director of commercialization at NBDC Technology. This summer’s session will introduce specific topics and focus on information and guidance on the USDA, Department of Agriculture, and / or the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR / STTR) application process. Guess.
A similar Defense Innovation series provides detailed steps to identify relevant solicitations and prepare proposals to meet Pentagon requirements.
Nichol-Caddy states that the two series are one of NBDC’s many confidential advisory services for researchers, entrepreneurs, and established enterprises with the technology they are trying to commercialize. Market research, business planning, and application for funding opportunities are some of the services available free of charge through NBDC’s state-wide network.
NBDC also offers weekly assigned online courses to assist in the preparation of SBIR / STTR submissions and compliance with deadlines. For more information, please contact Nichol-Caddy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
