Our goal is to help you to succeed at bringing your technology to market by taking advantage of the SBIR/STTR Federal programs non-dilutive funding.

The Department of Defense SBIR/STTR programs not only have the largest budget of ~$1.8B per year, but they also invest in the most diverse technology portfolio ranging from materials to biomedical technologies.

During the accelerator you will be matched with one or more topics within your capabilities and interest. You will receive virtual instruction, templates and resources to help you write your proposal, one-on-one counseling, and when possible, match-up with experts in your area.
