SBIR/STTR Three-Phase Program
Determines feasibility. Agencies award grants up to $150,000 for a six month SBIR project and one-year STTR project that explores the technical merit of an idea or technology. Applicants must submit a 25-page proposal in response to a specific agency topic. The proposal must articulate objectives, significance of the innovation, scope of work, and applicant qualifications. Recommended Timeline for Phase I Proposal Writing Process
Transfers innovation from the workbench to the marketplace. No SBIR/STTR funds support this phase, so an entrepreneur must pursue capital from the private sector or funding from other non-SBIR/STTR federal programs.

The MTI has developed an SBIR/STTR Technical Assistance Program (TAP) to encourage entrepreneurs and small business to participate in the federal SBIR/STTR Program. Companies may receive pro-bono guidance and advice from the TAP team separate from, and in addition to the MTI SBIR/STTR funding programs.
