We provide a rich set of data, tools, and analysis designed to connect these companies with the information, investors, partners, and professional expertise they need to succeed.
For the past three decades, the SBIR program has been a national driver of new business creation and industry-changing technology development. Annually, the SBIR and STTR programs provide over $2.5 Billion in non-dilutive R&D funding. This funding is available exclusively to small high-tech companies with the aim of commercializing innovative technologies meeting national needs.
These highly competitive programs are the largest federal source of early stage technology development funding available in the U.S. SBIR/STTR funding is available from 11 Federal Agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Energy.
