For this workshop they’ve taken to the road, traveling to Orono’s Upstart Center for Entrepreneurship. Thomas will introduce the Maine Procurement Technical Assistance Center and how their team can assist you and your business with government contracting.

He’ll then turn it over to MTI’s Karen West and Shane Beckham, who will discuss the ins and outs of the SBIR/STTR program. SBIR/STTR is a research and development program that awards contracts and grants to small businesses for early stage, high risk research and develop for innovating new products, services, and processes. Eleven federal agencies participate in the SBIR/STTR program.. MTI works with firms to identify SBIR opportunities and assists in developing competitive applications for Phase I and II funding.
