Innovator to Entrepreneur Program (ITEP) Webinar December 6, 2023

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), in association with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), is launching a new program to provide training and resources for the new Innovator to Entrepreneur Program (ITEP). This program is being administered by Foresight Science and Technology.

An ITEP informational webinar will be held on December 6, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. Registration is now open.

ITEP will assist aspiring entrepreneurs by providing cohort-based comprehensive training that covers the key elements of company launch, business strategy development, intellectual property (IP) protection, market research and customer discovery, startup financing and small business innovations research (SBIR)/small business technology transfer (STTR) grantsmanship.

This training will be provided at no cost to all program participants. To be eligible for the program, participants must meet the following criteria:

  • Have little to no previous experience in entrepreneurship
  • Have not previously received an NIH SBIR/STTR award
  • Develop products that are within the scope of NIAID and NHLBI areas of interest

This program will begin accepting applications for participation in December 2023. Register for the informational webinar today!

ITEP strongly encourages participation from underrepresented groups, including Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) and Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Businesses (SDBs). This program may be of particular interest to organizations actively promoting innovation and entrepreneurship among minorities, women, and socially disadvantageous groups such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Women Business Organizations, HUBZone programs, and others.
