Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR)

SBIR and a related program, Small Business Technology Transfer Program (STTR), grant money to small and startup businesses to develop products, technology or services that solve pressing problems in agriculture, defense, education, energy, transportation, the environment, space exploration, health and other areas.

SBIR and STTR are designed for high-risk, untested innovations, not for conventional enterprises, such as retail or service, or for technology companies with proven ideas.

Arrowhead Center’s NM FAST (New Mexico Federal And State Technology) offers eligible small businesses assistance with funding efforts through the federal SBIR and STTR programs. Assistance includes workshops, webinars and a resource directory.
