Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Proposals
Dr. Herbert A. Kinion Jr., SFPC
The Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) is another program that expands funding opportunities in the federal innovation research and development (R&D) arena. Central to the program is expansion of the public/private sector partnership to include the joint venture opportunities for small businesses and nonprofit research institutions. The unique feature of the STTR program is the requirement for the small business to formally collaborate with a research institution in Phase I and Phase II. STTR's most important role is to bridge the gap between performance of basic science and commercialization of resulting innovations. We view our services and partnerships as being fluid, ever evolving, and ongoing. We believe that every small business initiative is a beginning of a relationship, not simply a starting point with an end. Small business development and strategic planning is our target niche' and forte; however, we prefer to think of ourselves as relationship builders.
