America's Seed Fund
Are you an innovator with an early-stage technology that has commercial potential? Did you know that small businesses in the United States can apply for grants to commercialize their technology?
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs fund a diverse portfolio of startups and small businesses across technology areas and markets to stimulate technological innovation, meet U.S. federal R&D needs, and increase commercialization to transition R&D into impact. Find out more about these programs on the SBIR website.
As part of these SBIR/STTR grants, companies get funding to support commercialization assistance, or Technical and Business Assistance (TABA). Helixos provides these commercialization assistance services to companies receiving Phase I and Phase II SBIR grants.
Once you get SBIR funding, we'll help you get your technology to market.
How SBIR Works
SBIR/STTR grants provide early-stage, non-dilutive research and development grants to small businesses developing and commercializing their technology.
Innovators can apply for SBIR grants through participating federal agencies, including:
Through the Larta Institute, Helixos provides commercialization assistance and TABA services for SBIR/STTR grant awardees during Phase 1 and 2 to accelerate the process of commercializing science and technology innovation.
