(FREE) SBIR/STTR Federal Funding Assistance
Each year the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding programs award approximately $2.8+ billion in non-dilutive funding to small, high-tech, innovative businesses. SBIR encourages small for-profit companies to pursue risky but potentially rewarding endeavors and ideas to ensure the United States remains the world's innovation leader. The funding is awarded based on a competitive process that considers both the technical merit of the technology to be developed and the potential for successfully introducing it to the market.
