Access non-equity dilutive capital for your science & technology (S&T) innovators!
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Innovation & Technology has awarded a Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program grant to the SBDC Technology Commercialization Center (SBDC TCC). The center was one among 24 national awardees selected to provide specialized training, mentoring, and technical assistance for high-risk innovation and R&D commercialization focused small business. The project will support collaborations with organizations across the State of Texas to assist in the building of the innovation ecosystem and grow the science and technology economy. The project will seek to improve participation and outcomes for underserved communities in the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs by increasing participation from women-owned, rural-based, and socially economically disadvantaged small businesses throughout Texas. Funds provided through the annual $3 Billion SBIR program are non-equity dilutive capital, nor are they government loans to be repaid. They are the best source of U.S. government seed capital for small business innovators.
