Webinar: Funding your ATO through SBIR

"Funding your ATO through SBIR'' is a webinar designed to provide valuable information and guidance for small software businesses and start-ups looking to take advantage of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The SBIR program was established with the goal of empowering small businesses in federally-funded research and development. Over time, it has been adapted and optimized through different extension acts and programs like AFWERX, making it an increasingly attractive option for small businesses looking to grow and succeed.

This webinar will cover the benefits and opportunities provided by the SBIR program, including sole-source authority and the potential for follow-on funding. It will also explore other more traditional ways of doing business with the government, and why the SBIR program is a more desirable option with the added benefit that the funding can be used toward earning an Authority to Operate (ATO) within the Department of Defense (DoD).

Who is this Webinar for?

This webinar is helpful for small commercial software businesses and start-ups seeking to enter government sales and the defense market.

DoD mission owners, government acquisition professionals, and federal policymakers will also find this webinar insightful.
