America’s Seed Fund powered by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/ Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I Program Funding Solicitation.
The NSF STTR program focuses on transforming scientific discovery into products and services with commercial potential and/or societal benefit.
The NSF SBIR/STTR Program provides non-dilutive funding for the development of deep technologies, based on discoveries in fundamental science and engineering for profound societal impacts, and welcomes the submission of Project Pitches and full proposals (from companies invited to submit) in many technical areas.
The NSF STTR program focuses on transforming scientific discovery into products and services with commercial potential and/or societal benefit. Unlike fundamental or basic research activities that focus on scientific and engineering discovery itself, the NSF STTR program supports the creation of opportunities to move fundamental science and engineering out of the lab and into the market or other use at scale, or startups and small businesses representing “deep technology ventures.”
The NSF STTR Program funds research and development. The program is designed to provide funding and entrepreneurial support at the earliest stages of company and technology development.
