CEV Breakfast-Top 10 Mistakes to Avoid in the SBIR World:Ensuring Success in Proposals & Performance

Tue 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM

Writing a proposal for the SBIR program can be a daunting process and receiving an SBIR award creates its own challenges. During this workshop, you will learn about some common mistakes to avoid when proposing to the SBIR program as well as pitfalls to avoid when managing the contract or grant once it is awarded.  You will gain a deeper understanding of areas of risk, navigating the "red tape", Phase I versus Phase II compliance implications, and how to plan and perform successfully with the SBIR program. 

This is the first of 4 Colorado Emerging Ventures Building for Growth Breakfasts in 2016. These workshops are no cost to attend for qualified businesses with high growth goals in the advanced industries sectors thanks to generous sponsorship from Guaranty Bank and Trust Company. 

Colorado Emerging Ventures (CEV) programs are specifically developed to support businesses with high market potential and high growth goals - including bioscience, IT, aerospace, cleantech, advanced manufacturing, outdoor and natural products, and other key industries.
