The SBIR/STTR program aims to:

  • Stimulate technological innovation.
  • Strengthen the role of small businesses in federal research and development.
  • Encourage participation from socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses and women-owned business concerns.
  • Increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from federal R&D, boosting competition, productivity, and economic growth.

Eligible small business concerns must be U.S.-based, for-profit entities with fewer than 500 employees, and majority-owned by U.S. citizens or permanent residents, or by certain venture capital, hedge funds, or private equity firms.
