 SBIR 101: How to create a competitive SBIR grant application.


Dr FarellThis is a must attend event for any entrepreneur trying to pursue SBIR and other forms of government grant funding. Dr. David Farrell will share decades of experience successfully soliciting federal grants (SBIR, STTR, etc.) from the federal government. Unlike other seminars and workshops, Dr. Farrell takes a hands on approach. From teaching you the history of the programs, to actually logging onto the relevant sites and completing registration forms, participants complete the practical steps necessary to jumpstart their submissions.


Dr. Farrell's workshop will cover the broadest spectrum of federal programs, including SBIR/STTR programs for the National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with an emphasis on the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In addition, the huge Department of Defense budget will also be explored, including a few little-known pots of money--including: the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP), Air Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Navy, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), and Army SBIR/STTR programs and other non-SBIR contract programs.


This interactive session will include attendees downloading onto their own laptops each of the subsections of the application forms while Dr. Farrell explains proven strategies for creating competitive applications. This class is focused on overcoming the barriers standing between you and a funded grant.

  • Army recognizes Oregon medical device maker with innovation award

    Elizabeth Hayes, Portland Business Journal

    Wilsonville-based SAM Medical has been honored with a top award from the U.S. Army.

    The SAM Junctional Tourniquet received a Greatest Innovation Award for 2015, the company announced. The company began developing it in 2010 to prevent bleeding in the groin and shoulder areas.

    Hemorrhages in those areas often result from blast injuries from improvised explosive devices and carry a high amputation rate.

    SAM developed a tourniquet based on another of its products, the SAM Pelvic Sling. The end result was a tourniquet that reduces the chance of a pelvic fracture and compresses the artery. The Army Medical Command selected it for use in the field.

    According to SAM Medical, the tourniquet was the unanimous choice of the Army, NATO and Israeli military medics when they were asked, “If you went to war tomorrow, which junctional tourniquet would you take?”

    The SAM Splint is the biggest selling emergency splint in the world. With that and “pre-hospital” products, including the tourniquet and a chest seal, the company has been seeking new markets ranging from NASCAR to consumer outdoor retailers.
