APEX is thrilled to bring back our third round of SBIR/STTR info sessions this Spring! If you joined our sessions this past year, these upcoming dates will cover a great deal of similar content, but will also cover some program changes and growth from the most recent DAF solicitation.

The DAF has changed the game in its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, making it very venture capital-like, faster and applications-oriented.

The program presents a significant early-stage funding opportunity for technology entrepreneurs with products and services that can solve problems for the Air Force. The DAF participates in Department of Defense (DoD) solicitations three times per year. The next solicitation, 22.2B, is currently expected to have a mid-April pre-release with proposals due in June.

Topics to be covered:
-The Open Topic: what’s really different about the DAF SBIR/STTR program
-Other opportunities in DAF solicitations, including new Specific Topics
-The emergence of opportunities with Space Force through SpaceWERX
-What you can do now to improve your chances for a solid proposal and selection
-Customer Discovery: It’s what matters. How to get started
-APEX services to help you through and beyond your proposal
(there is no charge for these sessions or APEX support services)
