The Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Technology Transfer Innovation Research (STTR) programs can be beneficial in providing early-stage R&D funding to small innovative companies across industries and technology areas. With the aim of drawing innovative solutions from small companies by funding feasibility analysis through prototype demonstration, the federal government aims to commercialize technology that will not only benefit government agencies but the public as a whole.
