SBIR-STTR Assistance Center
If you are a technology-oriented business with less than 500 people and a new discovery or innovative concept that needs to increase your research and development dollars, USTAR’s SBIR-STTR Assistance Center may have help for you.
The SSAC, located at the Salt Lake Community College’s Miller Business Resource Center is a statewide resource assisting innovators and entrepreneurs to maximize their business potential through the non-dilutive federal Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
The SBIR and STTR programs offer more than $2.7 billion dollars annually to support the development of technology by small businesses across the nation and are an excellent source of early stage capital as they have no equity participation.
Through the SSAC, qualified businesses can gain assistance with all elements of the SBIR-STTR process to including:
- Searching and matching your concept with agency solicitations
- Pre-registering with Grants.gov and agencies
- Editing and writing assistance
- Training opportunities on how to find agency solicitation as well as tricks and nuances to winning SBIR-STTR proposals
Please contact the SBIR-STTR Assistance Center for further information, to sign up for SBIR 101 or for further information.
“Establishing the center creates better access to funding opportunities for Utah small businesses. The center’s staff will provide the needed skills and experience to assist small businesses with finding appropriate SBIR-STTR opportunities and writing successful grants.” -Ted McAleer, USTAR Executive Director
SSAC representatives are available to help small technology oriented businesses learn if their discovery/innovation concepts can be matched to federal agency SBIR-STTR topics.
