About Kentucky Science & Engineering Foundation
Created under the Kentucky Innovation Act of 2000, the Kentucky Science and Engineering Foundation’s (KSEF) mission is to serve the Kentucky spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation by encouraging the growth of the scientific and engineering excellence through investments in R&D in emerging technologies and human resource development.
This goal is achieved through a variety of support, including:
microAwards to facilitate the submission of SBIR/STTR applications
Accelerator and Incubator programs to position applicants for SBIR/STTR success
Consulting and Resources to navigate SBIR/STTR and early-stage business processes
Leading start-up/small business training, conferences, and networking events
You may be a good candidate for SBIR/STTR funding if your for-profit small business is federally registered and you have an idea for an innovative technology enabled product, process, or service.
