The SBIR program reserves a portion of the extramural research budgets of certain federal agencies for contracts or grants to small businesses. The annual amount available exceeds $1 billion, and more than half the awards are to firms with fewer than 25 people. The objectives of the program are to spur technological innovation in the small business sector, meet the research and development needs of the federal government, and commercialize federally funded investments. Lisa Kurek is nationally recognized as a trainer in grant writing and commercialization for entrepreneurs, and an expert on the SBIR application process. Since 1997, she has been Managing Partner of BBC Entrepreneurial Training & Consulting LLC in Ann Arbor. BBC works with universities, economic developers, and businesses to create and grow new life science companies.
