Non-Dilutive Startup Funding & Resources from the NIH

The SBIR/STTR programs at the NIH provide non-dilutive funding and other translational resources to small businesses for R&D in biomedical areas with strong commercial potential. The NIH SBIR/STTR budget has increased to more than $1 Billion in 2018, eligibility has been revised to include small businesses majority owned by VC operating companies and additional non-financial advisory services are now offered to small businesses to help them advance their product development programs. In this panel, startups can learn about funding opportunities and other resources from 4 of 27 NIH institutes and centers – National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institute Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and National Institute on Aging (NIA). The panel will also discuss how the NIH SBIR/STTR programs work with investors and industry strategic partners to showcase innovative technologies and build pipelines and overcome development challenges in a non-dilutive manner.
