All North Carolina R&D Companies that have won SBIR or STTR grants in 2014 can take advantage of matching funds from the state. Applications are now being accepted under the FY2014-2015 solicitation of the One North Carolina Small Business Matching Funds Program. This program provides funding to help small businesses develop and commercialize innovative new technologies. Under the Matching Funds Program, the State of North Carolina will issue a matching grant of up to $50,000 to businesses that have been awarded highly competitive federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants.

The matching program has been in hold for the last few years, so we are excited to see it come back. We hope that in the future, NC state will also bring back grants that cover the cost grant application writing, ranging anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000.

To win a SBIR or STTR grant, market opportunity section is one of the key elements. We specialize in working with scientists, researchers and engineers on their technology commercialization projects. Call us to inquire about our availability.
