"... if involvement in tech transfer and/or IP transactions, set-up of strategic alliances and collaborations are critical components of YOUR job description and/or business development strategy, the ASSETs Forum format of
structured pre-event interaction
in-depth groundwork to identify/achieve targeted matching
extensive & various at-event interaction & focused content
very useful, focused content sessions, involving leading experts in their fields
and effective post-event support
makes this a powerful, effective, must-be-involved resource"
|A Needs-Driven, Market-Pull system
This tightly structured, carefully-designed convening of those in several large and mid-sized firms with Tech Scouting responsibility and appropriately qualified SBIR-STTR Awardees is always
SBIR ASSET is a system - of which the Forum per se is only one part. The whole is an integrated, year-round approach to enabling and supporting effective working relationships of varying types between large and small firm - SBIR ASSETs Components.
These working relationships, and the deals which regularly come out of the Forum, are often the outcome of what may have been a several month process of drill-down prep-work - as much by the Tech Seeker as by the SBIR Awardee.
In short, the SBIR ASSETs process - and the Forum in particular - is
Instead, the database-supported, needs-driven ASSET System is about efficiently and effectively connecting serious Technology Seekers with actual decision-making responsibility to those specific SBIR-involved firms which have
--EITHER already developed, OR have made major progress towards, what the particular Tech Seekers is actually looking for
--AND/OR have the demonstrated skill-sets which suggest that they could be engaged to work effectively to that end.
The critical element underpinnning this effort and the demonstrated capacity to make truly effective matches of need to capability are powerful, proprietary SBIR relational databases developed and maintained by Event organizers - long-time, leading SBIR advocates in the private sector.
Accurate and complete to the most recently announced SBIR-STTR awards, this comprehensive, cross-agency system supports offline, rapid keyword/key-phrase -searches through all project Abstracts, Issued Patents, detailed Company Profiles, in-depth Capability Statements, Business and Financial Condition (to include VC, IPO, M&A), a full range of classification systems and analyses, Personnel Bios, Working papers, news releases and featured articles etc.
Those SBIR Awardees yielded by this process of matching capabilities to expressed Tceh Seeker need are those who will be notified of the opportunity. They are the ones invited to become engaged pre-event to find out more and to determine from that process whether to take the time to attend the event.
Note: this SBIR-STTR-focused Market-Pull, Tech-Transfer event explicitly is NOT open-access.
