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 leading technology from small businesses to the hands of the warfighter by helping these small businesses win funding and rapidly grow and develop to meet customer needs.
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 Air Force is most interested in companies with commercial sales or venture capital backing for their program.
SBIR awards are the gateway to additional funding opportunities and something known as “sole-source contracts”- a BIG deal when working with the federal government. Within months our clients are pursuing multi-million dollar awards.
How Do We Help?
We’ve been there. Our team of veterans and military spouses has billions of dollars of federal acquisition experience. We bring this experience to bear to help our clients write winning proposals, find Department of Defense customers, and deliver their technology where it’s needed most- the hands of the warfighter.
