With a budget of over $1 billion annually, the Department of Defense (DoD) has the largest SBIR/STTR program of any agency, with unmatched potential for follow-on contracting.  While all Department of Defense priorities serve warfighter requirements, the diversity of technical needs presents opportunities for nearly every capable, innovative company.  Join us online, Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 2-3:00 pm to learn more.  There is no charge to attend, but participants must register at to obtain the webinar link. 

Participants will learn about the important differences among the dozen participating DoD components and how to best approach them, do background research to gain important advantages, and the critical importance of “Dual Use” strategies.  Most importantly, you will learn how key partnerships, with universities, prime contractors, and DoD labs, can enhance your capabilities and credibility to become much more successful.
