Webinar: What You Need to Know About Technology Commercialization for SBIR Grants
Technology springs from an idea that poses a solution to a problem. To successfully commercialize technology, you need to progress from that specific solution to a more general product that creates value for customers. To move from idea to product to revenue, businesses need to identify their customers and requirements, how to reach them and deliver a valued solution to their problem. This session provides steps to commercialization and resources to support your strategic efforts.
