SBIR and STTR federal funding programs provide more than $2.5 billion in grants and contracts each year to small businesses and startups to develop new products and services based on advanced technologies. SBIR Phase I awards start at $150,000 and Phase II awards start at $1 million and can increase to as much as $2 million. The unique feature of the STTR program is the requirement for the small business to formally collaborate with a research institution in Phase I and Phase II. Though the benefits of each program can be transformational for either startups or researchers on the path to commercialization, the application process can be difficult without help.
