imgres-1The U.S. government invests more than $2 billion every year in promising new startups with creative innovations.

In Austin, startups including Tevido Biodevices, Spot on Sciences and Lynx Labs have received Small Business Innovation Research grants.

So how does a startup go about getting one of the SBIR grants?

That’s the subject of a meeting Thursday at the Austin Chamber of Commerce offices at 535 E. 5th Street from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. co-hosted with the South Texas Business Development Center at Texas State University as part of its Spectrum series for entrepreneurs.

The session features advice from SBIR expert and grant writer Lisa Kurek and an update on the I-Corps Node from Heath Naquin.

Registration is required to attend the event.
