Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) partners with the Michigan Small Business Development Center (MI-SBDC) and Biotechnology Business Consultants (BBC) to offer comprehensive SBIR/STTR support to Michigan entrepreneurs. Services are available at every stage from idea to commercialization.
The Michigan Emerging Technologies Fund (MI-ETF) provides commercialization funding to Michigan SBIR/STTR recipients. Managed by the MI-SBTDC in partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), the fund provides awards up to $25,000 and $125,000 to match Phase I and Phase II SBIR/STTR awards. The fund helps companies cover important expenditures such as patent protection or sales and marketing activities required to commercialize the technology developed with SBIR/STTR R&D funds. The ETF will match both Phase I and Phase II SBIR/STTR awards until funds are exhausted.
