Conference Address:
Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology
2214 Rock Hill Road
Herndon, VA

Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) is sponsoring a special SBIR workshop to serve as a "booster" for those who have already been to a major workshop and/or are currently developing their proposals. This an INTENSE half-day focus on a 5-page checklist of competitive issues that can influence win probability. This is NOT a basic SBIR, nor a proposal writing class. Among the many, a few of the topics to be considered include:

* Have you adequately defined the problem or opportunity?
* Did you appropriately relate issues to agency's needs?
* Have you properly stated your project objectives?
* Did you design your research plans to meet reviewers needs and take advantage of typical reviewer habits?
* Will your proposal convince reviewers of intent and ability to commercialize?
* Is a sufficiently deep technical discussion provided?
* Were resources (personnel, subcontractors, facilities) showcased to best advantage?
* etc.

The instructor & a take-home checklist will be provided by the SBIR Resource CenterTM, the nation's leading supplier of commercial SBIR/STTR business development tools.

Who Should Attend:
Anyone currently engaged in proposal development, or those who have attended a major SBIR workshop previously, who are now ready to deal with the issues of making SBIR/STTR applications more competitive to increase their chances of being funding.
