Don't ignore critical aspects of the cost portion

Too often, PIs spend hundreds of hours on the technical section of their SBIR proposal while ignoring critical aspects of the cost portion. Researchers typically give only passing consideration to indirect cost recovery through the grant process. Consequently, research is financially leveraged more than need be, and/or it sacrifices precious equity at a stage when it has little market value.

In this idea-filled and strategy-packed webinar, you’ll learn best practices, tips, and techniques honed over 30 years by our expert. You’ll come away with not only dozens of insights and tactics, but also a higher comfort level that you are doing everything you can to secure optimal financial returns for your SBIR grant and insure compliance with the FAR and other regulations.

Here’s just a sample of what we’ll cover in this dynamic session:

  • Hard Caps vs. Soft Cost Caps
  • How to find additional resources & tools - Frequently Free!
  • The Multiplier: How much do you charge for $1 paid for labor?
  • Labor Utilization Rate: The most important factor in projecting your costs!
  • Strategies to get objective benchmarking on your specific cost proposal
  • And much more!
