The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), a federal organization, funds the most innovative and contemporary science and engineering ideas. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) are two of NSF’s grants that aim to aid startups in building new out-of-the-box technologies. 

Key Takeaways:

  • America’s Seed Funding Program strongly emphasizes developing technological and scientific advancements into services and products with economic and societal benefits. Over 400 startups across the United States get over $200 million in research and development (R&D) funds each year. 
  • As an NSF SBIR/STTR Phase I applicant, you can look for Technology Partners like Larta during the “Proof of Concept” stage who can offer various technical services to enhance your Phase I technology and get you ready for Phase II.
  • The deadline for Phase I and Phase II SBIR/STTR proposals from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is October 26, 2022.
