Hundreds of KC resources will help you with your next step.
Competitive grants are available to high-growth, high-risk companies. Here are just a few grants available to innovation-led companies.
Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants fund research and development efforts of a high risk nature that may have excellent commercial potential.
Small U.S. businesses are eligible to participate in the SBIR/STTR program if they are for-profit and have 500 or fewer employees. Nonprofit organizations are not eligible.
The UMKC Small Business Technology Development Center can help with applications for these grants. The SBA offers online tutorials to help small businesses navigate the SBIR program.
