SBIR/STTR funding is a critical source of early stage capital for small businesses researching and developing commercializable innovations in the broad field of healthcare. Within NIH, 24 agencies participate in SBIR/STTR programs. If you are a small Maine business developing an innovation with applicability in healthcare, an SBIR/STTR grant could provide $150,000 (Phase I) and $1 million (Phase II) in non-equity funding.
