Matching Grants for SBIR/STTR Phase II

The federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs represent the largest source of early-stage, high-risk technology financing in the United States. Eleven federal agencies participate in this program which provides funding for early-stage research and development projects leading to the commercialization of resulting products or services. The programs are designed to benefit entrepreneurs and small businesses — while increasing the competitiveness of the U.S. economy — by funding the development of innovative products and services.

The IRISBF provides matching grants of up to $100,000 to assist recipients of SBIR/STTR Phase II awards to commercialize their innovations.
