Maryland’s TEDCO, OST, and the Small Business Development Center (Team TEDCO) have teamed together to select up to 25 companies to participate in a unique opportunity to join OST’s next SBIR/STTR Proposal Lab. For a third year, Team TEDCO will run a Proposal Lab tailored to assist Maryland small businesses to develop and submit a proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for a Phase I award up to $256,000. The Proposal Lab runs from January 15, 2021 through June 2021. The application process will close on December 31, 2020 and it will be competitive. If you qualify, you will receive an invitation to a virtual interview. Apply now, since space is limited for this high-value and heavily discounted training!
