Removing Barriers to R&D Funding

The Kentucky Science & Engineering Foundation (KSEF) removes the barriers to funding for the R&D activities of start-ups and small businesses which are essential for building a pipeline of new ideas and technologies to drive the technological and economic growth of the Commonwealth.


Whether you are developing a new technology and need help or an established company looking for support for your next SBIR/STTR submission, we can help.

"The KSEF SBIR microAward has truly removed barriers to our startup’s prototype research and design activities."
