(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.
Our network partner, VertueLab, offers FREE support services to qualified applicants thinking of applying for an SBIR/STTR grant. Contact Leon Wolf at VertueLab to learn more. Start here.
