Add to calendar

Thursday, March 7, 2019
3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Location: CNY Biotech Accelerator | 841 E. Fayette St., Syracuse, NY*

It takes considerable time and effort for a startup company to identify a path to commercial success. This is especially true for companies leveraging high-technology that requires significant R&D to commercialize. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funding can help support small companies working to commercialize high-risk high-reward technologies, but how do SBIRs fit into the startup company narrative?

James A. Monroe is a scientist turned entrepreneur who has worked on the commercial and technical development of ALLVAR Alloys as the PI of several SBIR grants and contracts. He will discuss SBIRs as a funding and technology development mechanism in the greater context of the startup company strategy.
