Which SBIRs are on the list?

Ask yourself....
Would a Novartis connection be useful to you?
Are one/more of your competitors listed below as among those already interested in involvement?

The following represent a cross-section of appropriately qualified SBIR firms having already responded to the opportunity to meet on Sept 21-22 with senior Novartis decision-making personnel.  These SBIR awardees are all actively working on the site on the Nutshells and White Papers which are the basis of the decision(s) re. who gets to present at that event.

Be reminded that - as is always the case on these occasions - the host Tech Seeker have the final decision re. whom they will host at this inknowvation@work® event. 

As a corporation, Novartis has a significant SBIR presence though not, we suspect, because of that SBIR connection.  External outreach personnel with the corporation have been involved in several ASSETs Forums and found that useful.  However, this is their first swing at meeting lots of you who are working in space that is of specific interest to them. 

Last day to apply for Event Consideration:
August 24 is officially the last day to submit materials that will be the basis of deciison to invite SBIR firms of interest. It may seem that gives you lots of time ... but please do be reminded that things always take longer this time of the year.   if you leave it too late to make your interest in event participation known, there may be very few slots left. We will be at capacity with THIRTY presenting SBIR firms.

  • White Papers etc are already being submitted
  • and decisions are being made on a rolling basis
