Technical and Business Assistance Services

Do you know about technical and business assistance (TABA) funding?

Many participating agencies now offer funding to third party vendors, selected by SBIR/STTR awardees, who can provide technical and business assistance services. TABA offers an essential “toolbox” to help you cover commercialization and business costs that otherwise could not be included in your SBIR/STTR proposal. Several federal agencies are implementing TABA Services from the 2019 John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act.
