Successful SBIR Phase III Transitions – Navigating the Valley of Death

March 16, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm



Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): It isn’t referred to as the “valley of death” without a reason.  In this collider we will uncover the secrets of how small businesses have managed to transition from the initial phases of the SBIR program to a phase III award.  We will be hearing from 5 firms who have done exactly that and achieved the pinnacle of the SBIR program.  They have graciously agreed to share their journey and lessons learned with other small businesses pursuing the same goal.  Also joining are several of the Air Force Program Executive Officer (PEO) innovation leads who can help connect promising SBIR technology with phase III opportunities
