For the third year, the SBIR Assistance Program for the State of Georgia has exceeded its ever increasing goal in SBIR and STTR awards. For FY08 (ended June 30th), companies who have received help from the program in submitting SBIR and STTR proposals have been selected for over $9 million of this federal R&D funding. Data has revealed that companies that receive guidance from the SBIR Assistance Program are two and a half times more likely to be selected for funding than the average applicant.
So what’s on tap for FY09? The goal is to assist companies that are selected for at least $12 million in awards and to see products reaching the marketplace from assisted companies. Will your company be one of these?
