2. Attend theJanuary 20th “Dissecting the Solicitations” webinar. A recording will be posted on the program's website if you are unable to attend.


3. Consider applying for the Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Programand/or Technical and Business Assistance (TABA), which help small businesses commercialize their innovations through additional funding and other support. You'll be able to indicate interest in either one when submitting your proposal.
