Workshops and training

SAGE offers a variety of workshops and webinars, as well as individual consulting and mentoring. There is a difference between traditional grants such as R01s and and SBIR/STTR grants – the expected outcomes under SBIR/STTR have to lead to commercial application.

Depending on the agency, the SBIR-STTR program can award from $100,000 to $300,000 for a Phase I project with Phase II being typically $750,000 or more. A successful SBIR-STTR application requires an understanding of how to do the market research, the market need for your idea and the development of a commercialization plan. SBIR/STTR grants provide non-dilatable funding thereby increasing the value of your company. 

Join us each semester for a week of workshops designed to help inventors, innovators, entrepreneurs – students, faculty, and community members – learn how to launch and fund technology-based startups.
