Attention NSIV Members, Mentors, Advisors and Affiliates: Announcing the first of a special series of programs to help your company identify, apply for and secure federal government funding. The first program is specific to NIH but a subsequent program in early December with Tiber Creek Partners will address DoE and DoD opportunities.
Please mark your calendars! On Friday, October 26, 8:00 – 10:00 AM, in the
Cummings Center Conference Room, 221E, North Shore InnoVentures will be hosting a premier Panel of Reviewers who have served on committees for the NIH SBIR grants program.
We have assembled a panel of distinguished scientists from the Greater Boston area, all of whom have had experience reviewing grant applications to NIH and have extensive knowledge of how the process works.
The following topics will be discussed by the panelists during the program:
- The most common grant errors leading to low scores
- Formatting applications for maximum impact
- Using your technologies’ pitfalls and roadblocks to advantage
- The smart way to balance innovation and risk
- Turning great science into commercial success
- Building your dream team–having the appropriate staff
- And much more!

After the prepared program , there will be a 20 min period for the panelists to respond to questions from the audience.
