The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an excellent source of non-diluted funding for many small businesses. However, before submitting a full Phase I SBIR/STTR proposal, your Project Pitch must be approved by an NSF Program Director (PD). The required NSF Project Pitch allows startups and small businesses to get quick feedback at the start of their application for Phase I funding. Startups or entrepreneurs who submit a three-page Project Pitch will know within three weeks if they meet the program's objectives to support innovative technologies. This webinar will address what the eligibility requirements are. We will focus on composing your Project Pitch, highlighting each of the critical sections. We will briefly discuss how to submit your Pitch and what comes next: e.g., acceptance, questions, or rejection.
