Helping you FIND money - SBIR Assistance
Are you a small R&D company in Hawaii developing new and innovative technologies? If so, you could be eligible for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I funding of up to $150,000 and Phase II funding of up to $1 million. Federal departments and agencies set aside money every year to award small businesses like you to develop new technologies and innovations of critical need to our nation.
In addition, INNOVATE Hawaii also provides Hawaii’s Phase I SBIR and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) qualified awardees a matching grant of up to 50% of the Phase I award.
The purpose of the Matching Grant program is to help Hawaii Phase I awardees enhance their SBIR project development, compete for the more lucrative Phase II awards to typically conduct prototype development, and ultimately reach successful commercialization.
But how do you begin? The process of writing a grant proposal can be daunting. INNOVATE Hawaii is here for you. We have the means to guide you through the proposal process, via informative trainings and connections with qualified consultants, pre-vetted through our Business Consultant Program.
