These program are mandated by Congress and reserve 3.2% of federal research dollars for small businesses.  Eleven federal agencies conduct calls for proposals each year and award over $2.5 B to transform scientific discovery to the commercial sector.  The programs fund startups and small businesses to undertake cutting-edge, high-quality scientific research and development.  Whether you work for a small business now or are considering starting or joining a small science-based business, this is an opportunity you should explore.
