The US government’s SBIR/STTR program provides an excellent funding source that technology and medical entrepreneurs can use to start and grow their businesses. However, penetrating the world of government contracting and selling your ideas and technology to the government can be a daunting task. This book aims to make it easier for you to take that first step and begin writing winning SBIR/STTR proposals. This book consists of five short chapters that provide an SBIR/STTR program overview, an introduction to planning your SBIR/STTR proposal, a discussion of important intellectual property considerations, and a discussion of the special issues in financial management and accounting that are unique to doing business with the government.
