Congress established the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program
in 1982 to fund research and development (R&D) by U.S. owned and operated
businesses of less than 500 employees. SBIR, the nation's largest source of
early-stage technology financing. The three-phase SBIR Program directly
funds up to $1.15 million in early-stage R&D by small companies. Eligible
projects must fulfill an R&D need identified by the DoD and have the
potential to be developed into a product or service for commercial or
defense markets.

Stop by the AFWERX-Austin hub to find out more about upcoming SBIR
announcements and the latest in trends, efficiencies and local opportunities
available through this program.
