Our state and federal funding allow us to deliver free and confidential coaching support.
The Catalyst Program aims to bridge the gap between research and practical application, ensuring that innovative technologies or inventions have a real-world impact and are financially viable. It involves strategic planning, business development, marketing, and intellectual property management to successfully introduce the technology to the market.
We deliver individualized and customized support to Catalyst firms to apply for funding. Our core areas include business, technical, budget, and team structure that aligns with the federal agency. These categories are consistent across the agencies; however, each agency operates its SBIR/STTR programs differently based on their mission, processes, systems and requirements.
If you have not submitted your information to our Catalyst Program, start today by submitting your company and project information via our Catalyst submission form. The submission requires demographic information to meet our state and federal reporting requirements along with a thoughtful discussion of the technical innovation, the technical challenges and opportunities, the market opportunity, the company and team and scientific literature that supports the innovation.
