Celebrating an incredible year for emerging technologies in Kentucky.

As 2022 comes to a close, we want to take the time to look back at some of the year's highlights and celebrate the incredible wins we saw from our partners.

2022 Highlights

  • We ran four agency-specific SBIR/STTR accelerators, including the launch of the USDA Accelerator in fall 2022.

  • Through accelerators, webinars and one-on-one consultations we supported the submission of 40 proposals to six federal agencies winning seven federal awards in fiscal year 2022.

  • We awarded $117,858 to reduce barriers to SBIR/STTR funding through our microAward program.

  • In fall 2022 we were selected for second-year funding as Kentucky's only recipient of the SBA FAST award.
