Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grants

The federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs provide more than $2 billion annually in R&D grants and contracts to qualified small businesses (U.S. owned, independently operated, for-profit entities of fewer than 500 employees). Learn more about both programs.

**Starting on March 6, 2024, and on through the fall, VertueLab will host a series of virtual training sessions that are designed to assist startups interested in submitting winning SBIR or STTR proposals. Learn more and register at VertueLab's Federal Funding Assistance page.
