SBIR/STTR funding is intended for technology innovations with commercial potential that are at the phase of proving feasibility and/or building a small-scale prototype.

Business Laboratory Facilities
The SBIR program requires 67% - 100% of the research and technology development be performed by the small business. The STTR program requires 40% - 70% of it to be done by the small business.
Does the small business own, or have access to, research and development space?
In addition to the PI and, in the case of STTR, the Co-PI, the qualifications of the entire project team are an important factor in demonstrating sufficient expertise for SBIR/STTR funding. Some of those team members can be employees (full- or part-time) of the small business, some can be contractors, some can come from a research institution (RI), and some can come from another business (small or large).

The PI and, in the case of STTR funding, the Co-PI have already been identified. Please identify up to three other key team members on this project.

If you, the contact person, are NOT serving as the PI or Co-PI, please list yourself as the 1st teammate and give your qualifications.
