The State of Wyoming’s
Economic Development Agency
The federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs fund innovative research and development projects carried out by small businesses. The focus is on supporting important new ideas that have good potential for commercialization. While eleven federal agencies provide SBIR funding, the largest five account for almost all of the ~$2.2B funds available each year, and only those five fund STTR awards. (STTR awards require participation/partnering with a non-profit research entity—usually a university; SBIR’s allow partnering.) If your small company needs funding to develop an innovative technology, you need to know what types of projects these agencies are interested in funding—and what the playing field looks like for these competitive awards. The Big Five includes Department of Defense, Department of Energy, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Science Foundation, and National Institute of Health. We are also adding in USDA, because it is a good target for many Wyoming companies. We are also adding in USDA, because it is a good target for many Wyoming companies. This webinar will provide an overview of the similarities and differences among these agencies that participate in SBIR/STTR. The presenter will be Mark Henry from Grow Emerging Companies LLC. Mark has 37 years of SBIR/STTR experience. He has worked on some 3000 proposals and has been working with companies in Wyoming for nearly two decades. Mark is known as “the Vince Lombardi of the SBIR program.”
