CTTC and Launch TN host an SBIR/STTR Workshop

Tuesday, April 15, our office and leaders at Launch Tennessee hosted a three-hour SBIR/STTR workshop for Vanderbilt researchers, faculty and staff. A crowd of more than 30 listened intently as Mark Henry, founder of Grow Emerging Technologies, LLC and nationally renowned expert in writing successful SBIR/STTR grants, talked about the importance of writing a compelling application and underlining the commercializaiton potential of the technology or research. Surprisingly, Henry told the audience, about 1/3 of all SBIR/STTR awardees are first time applicants.
