We are a team of Military Veterans and Spouses who support small businesses with exciting new technology ideas by helping them find and capture contracts through the SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) Program.
We deliver the best commercial technology to the warfighter by igniting defense innovation through small business growth and development.
Who Are We?
What is SBIR?
The Department of Defense uses the SBIR program to pay commercial companies to conduct customer discovery and bring their product to the warfighter. Currently, the Department of Defense is most interested in companies with commercial sales or venture capital backing.
Phase I awards typically happen within 3 weeks of submission. Once an award is made, your company has met legal competition requirements which allow you to sell to the Federal government without competition.
How Do We Help?
Long Capture works with our clients to write or review their proposals to ensure acceptance into the SBIR program. Once awarded, we utilize our vast network of Department of Defense contacts to connect our clients with Phase II contracts and unlimited sole source opportunities.
