SBIR & STTR, John Thom
  • The Navy's SBIR/STTR programs are primarily mission oriented programs, which fund science and technology areas that enhance the Navy's capabilities through innovations developed by small businesses. The programs are congressionally mandated. Each federal agency with an extramural Research Development Testing and Evaluation budget in excess of $100M must participate. The STIR program requires small companies to partner with researchers at universities, non-profit research institutions, or contractor-operated federally funded R&D centers (FFRDCs), and work as a team to turn ideas into technologies and products.

  1. Company party ideas including meetings, seminars, and conferences are usually organized to discuss the vital objectives on the company. Hence, it is really important to plan these properly, as inadequacy in event planning may result in mismanagement.

  2. Small businesses owners don't have the resources of the big companies but they are just as exposed to a potential data breach.
