The Kentucky Science & Engineering Foundation is launching a new NSF Incubator with a three-part webinar series to help businesses succeed at bringing their technology to market by taking advantage of the SBIR/STTR (also known as America’s Seed Fund) programs non-dilutive funding.
The Incubator supports participants through the NSF SBIR/STTR proposal process by helping them identify appropriate topic areas and providing coaching and resources to submit a competitive proposal. The current NSF submission window is open March 2 - July 5, 2023.
During the incubator, participants will receive virtual instruction via one-on-one meetings with KSEF staff and webinars. From there, participants could be matched with an expert consultant who can provide templates and resources for writing a proposal as well as one-on-one coaching about the proposal application.
