NSF Funding for Startups and Small Businesses

About the series

Did you know that the National Science Foundation (NSF) offers funding to help turn discoveries into products or services?

Join an upcoming webinar if you are interested in translating your technology, testing if it has market potential or just learning about NSF funding opportunities.

In each webinar, a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program director will discuss one of the many specific scientific topics funded through the NSF Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships.

Look for future webinars and read more about the full range of technology topics at America's Seed Fund powered by NSF.

Biomedical and Digital Health Technologies  
Monday, March 2, 2020
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET
Focus on translation of innovative biomedical and digital health technologies. The topic supports the early-stage development of novel medical devices and wearables, components, processes, systems, algorithms, networks, applications, or services that target improvement in health.

Distributed Ledger Technologies 
Thursday, March 5, 2020 
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
Focus on translation of innovation on technologies spanning all areas of distributed ledger including, but not limited to, blockchains, Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs), and related capabilities (cryptography, smart contracts, etc.).

Artificial Intelligence 
Monday, March 9, 2020 
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
Focuses on translation of leading-edge innovation in all areas of artificial intelligence (AI) -- including, for example, machine learning, computer vision and natural language processing -- and applications of such innovations in areas of commercial and societal impact, such as industries of the future and education.

Pharmaceutical Technologies 
Thursday, March 12, 2020 
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
Focus on the translation of a wide range of innovative technological areas to advance the discovery, early-stage development and characterization, formulation, delivery, and/or manufacture of novel drugs, moieties, compounds, products, processes, platforms or services that will improve the selection, quality, or price of pharmaceutical therapies.

Biological Technologies 
Monday, March 16, 2020 
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
Focus on the translation of a wide range of technological areas to advance engineering and science innovation across the biological spectrum. Biological technologies have disrupted decades-old chemical, agricultural, and medical products and services, producing a new bioeconomy.

Thursday, March 19, 2020 
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET 
Focuses on the translation of technology to advance cybersecurity, security and authentication to address issues in an increasingly networked, distributed, and asynchronous world. Cybersecurity involves hardware, software, networks, data, people and integration with the physical world.
