How to Write a Great NSF Project Pitch

February 2nd 1pm PACIFIC TIME

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an excellent source of non-diluted funding for many
small businesses. However, before submitting a full Phase I SBIR/STTR proposal, your Project
Pitch must be approved by an NSF Program Director (PD). The required NSF Project Pitch allows
startups and small businesses to get quick feedback at the start of their application for Phase I
funding. Startups or entrepreneurs who submit a three-page Project Pitch will know within
three weeks if they meet the program's objectives to support innovative technologies. This
webinar will address what the eligibility requirements are. We will focus on composing your
Project Pitch, highlighting each of the critical sections. We will briefly discuss how to submit
your Pitch and what comes next: e.g., acceptance, questions, or rejection.
