The Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (M2D2) is proud to sponsor the following Massachusetts Life Science Center SBMG Program Information Session.

Please join the MLSC information session here at the Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (M2D2) at the location above to learn more about this program.

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center is pleased to announce the launch of its FY12 round of the Small Business Matching Grant (SBMG) Program. This program reflects the Center’s ongoing commitment to supporting early-stage life sciences companies that will grow employment opportunities, promote manufacturing and commercialization, and stimulate innovation across the Commonwealth. The Center is targeting an FY12 investment of $3 million in the Small Business Matching Grant Program.

The primary objective of the Small Business Matching Grant Program (SBMG) is to provide grants to commercialization-ready life sciences and technology companies that have received at least the equivalent of a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant from federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Defense (DOD), etc. 

Grants will provide matching support capped at $500,000 per company to Phase II or Post Phase II SBIR or STTR grants already awarded to applicant companies. Through the SBMG Program grants, the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center will help companies that have developed now commercialization-ready technologies reach production and create jobs in the Commonwealth. 

Massachusetts Life Sciences require an RSVP for the information sessions above and ask that you please provide contact information in the event of cancellation of the session due to inclement weather. Please send your RSVP to sbmg@masslifesciences.com
