From innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialization, MN-SBIR is the State’s focal point to assist seed, early stage, emerging and existing firms (1-500 employees) to successfully access non-dilutive federal funding through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs. MN-SBIR is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Department of Employment and Economic Development, the University of Minnesota, Office of Technology Commercialization and MHTA.

***SBIR/STTR funding offers non-dilutive funding for game changing, disruptive, cutting edge science and technology that has the potential for commercialization.***
