This class will provide tips on developing a credible commercialization plan, using market research to direct your efforts, how to build a business model and commercialization planning differences across agencies. Learn how federal funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs can be a valuable part of the process.
