A year ago today SBIRGA was launched. Happy Birthday!! Our goal was to have "SBIR on your mind" when you sought SBIR funding announcements, research information, and assistance–the place you go when wanting to take your high-tech concept/innovation to the next level.
Following on the footsteps of two blogs for Georgia's small tech companies, Peachseedz and GT VentureLab, SBIRGA provided news and information as well as tips and insight into the proposal preparation process. One of the major benefits for those reading and following SBIRGA was the posting of SBIR and STTR solicitations as they opened.
The mission of the SBIR Assistance Program for the State of Georgia is to:
- Educate Georgia companies and future entrepreneurs on SBIR and STTR
- Assist Georgia companies in identifying appropriate agencies and topics
- Provide tips and guidance on SBIR/STTR proposal planning and submission
- Facilitate the development of partnerships between SBIR and STTR Award recipients and research collaborators, integrators, and potential customer
Through SBIRGA, we hope we've helped clarify and educate you on SBIR and STTR. We're not finished, so keep coming back. In fact, let us know what you would like to see. Are there topics you would liked covered? Are we missing something you think is important? Let us know!
We're here for you, so we want to make sure we are assisting you in THE best way! Thanks for making it a great year! Keep on reading!
