The Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program

The Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program assists SBIR and STTR applications in all 50 states. This initiative aims to enhance small businesses' involvement in federal innovation and research programs, particularly those that lack sufficient resources. The FAST program enhances the potential of eligible small businesses to secure federal funding by providing financial assistance, expert consulting, and strategic guidance to help them navigate the complexities of the SBIR/STTR application process. This assistance is essential for innovators and entrepreneurs who aspire to introduce innovative concepts to the market, as it establishes a strong foundation for success in competitive federal grant programs.
