Support for Non-dilutive Funding

Federal funding is an overlooked, underutilized path to get products to market without a founder sacrificing equity in the business. SBIR, STTR, NSF, and NIH grants and other federal awards are highly competitive – requiring diligence, planning, attention to detail, and a strong team of dedicated technical experts. ATDC’s grant assistance program crosses all verticals in our portfolio from our bioscience and med devices companies to our cleantech and robotics superstars.

In just 10 years’ time, ATDC companies have raised $125M+ from federal grant funding. Our SBIR assistance program is a secret weapon in helping science and technology startups submit strong applications, execute projects, and ultimately commercialize their technology faster than any competitor.

Carbice

considered a true disruptor in clean tech circles, Carbice developed a patent for nanomaterial-based thermal packaging materials. With ATDC’s help, the company raised multiple rounds of early nondilutive funding from the NSF and DoD totaling $2.9M. Today, the Carbice Space Pad is integrated into nearly all satellite solutions in space.

Sila

Sila

one of our graduate unicorns in the energy space, this manufacturer of supercharged car batteries intended to improve energy storage options leveraged ATDC to win a total of $5.2M from the U.S. Dept. of Energy and the National Science Foundation.
