The National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) program seeks to transform scientific discovery into societal and economic benefit by catalyzing private sector commercialization of technological innovations. The NSF SBIR/STTR is a program under the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships and an SBIR/STTR grant can be thought of as angel funding, but is non-dilutive and federally funded. The program seeks to assist early-stage companies with innovative technologies that require additional research and development in order to advance commercialization. The NSF SBIR/STTR program welcomes proposals for research and development in all areas of engineering and science and related education. “I am honored to have been chosen to help identify startups with the best potential for growth,” said Avi Rosenthal, president and founder of IoT Consulting. “This program assists in the development of American innovation, which is vital to the growth of our economy.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
