SBIR/STIR

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization.

 

MCFL PTAC is helping small business concerns explore more than $3B in SBIR and STTR opportunities.

 

Program Goals:

  • Stimulate technological innovation.
  • Meet Federal research and development needs.
  • Stimulate technological innovation.
    Meet Federal research and development needs.
  • Foster and encourage participation by women and socially or economically disadvantaged persons.
  • Increase private-sector commercialization derived from Federal research and development funding.

 

In addition, the STTR program aims to:
Foster technology transfer through cooperative R&D between small businesses and research institutions.

3 Phases of SBIR and STIR

Phase 1

Pre-prototype Phase: Funded up to $100,000 for approximately 6 months (1 year for STTR) to explore the technical merit or feasibility of an idea, concept, or technology.

Phase 2

Prototype Phase: Funded up to $750,000 ($500,000 for STTR), for a period of up to 2 years, to expand on Phase I results. During this phase, R&D work is implemented and commercialization potential is evaluated.

Phase 3

Commercialization Phase: The innovation is moved from the laboratory into the marketplace, and outside funds (non SBIR and non STTR) are used to market the product.
