The Small Business Innovation Research Program, SBIR, is the federal government's largest R&D grants program targeted to the small business community. With over $2 billion available annually, it is arguably the best source of risk capital available to help fund the development of promising new technologies. SBIR can also serve as a pathway to equity financing.
