Announcing the launch of the New SBIR/STTR Portal

The new is here! With a comprehensive database, robust search engine, user-friendly designer, and useful new content, the new will help small businesses that are part of or may become part of the SBIR or STTR programs. Here’s a quick overview:

Who should use is designed to help small businesses connect with agencies as part of the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer Program (STTR). It is a “one-stop-shop” if you are a small business interested in responding to an agencies solicitation for innovative research and development. Agencies and prime contractors looking for eligible small businesses may also find the site useful.
