    • Phase IB Third-Party Investment + 1:2 NSF Matching (up to $30k) IA Phase IIB Third-Party Investment + 1:2 NSF Matching (up to $500k) IA Private Sector Or Non-SBIR Investment Phase I Phase II Phase III Feasibility Research SBIR - $ 150k/6 mos. STTR - $ 225k/12 mos. Research towards Prototype $ 500k or $750k/24 mos. (based on solicitation) Product Development to Commercial Market IA = Innovation Accelerator
    • Specific NSF SBIR Program Features 3  Funds set-aside for SBIR  $152 million at NSF in FY2012 (for SBIR Phase I, II, and IIB combined)  Broad topical areas  Nine very wide topical areas intended to allow proposers the ability to align their proposed project with the company’s commercial goals  Three-phase approach:  PHASE I – Feasibility Research (6 months - $150,000/$225,000)  PHASE II – Research Toward Prototype (24 months - $750,000)  PHASE IIB – Matching funds against outside investment (12 to 24 month extension, up to an additional $500,000)  PHASE III – Product Development to First Revenues (non-SBIR/STTR funding)
    • Awardee Demographics 4  Data from FY 2012 NSF SBIR/STTR Phase I awardees:  86% of Phase I awardees have 10 or fewer employees  90% of Phase I awardee companies were incorporated since 2007  73% of Phase I awardees have never had a Phase II award from any agency  University ties and lineage of Phase II projects (National     Academies Study, 2007): 37% involve faculty members 27% involve graduate students 25% rent/use university facilities 17% issue a subcontract to a university
    • Broad Technical Topics 5  Educational Technologies and Applications (EA)  Information and Communication Technologies (IC)  Semiconductors (S) and Photonic (PH) Devices and Materials  Electronic Hardware, Robotics and Wireless Technologies (EW)  Advanced Manufacturing and Nanotechnology (MN)  Advanced Materials and Instrumentation (MI)  Chemical and Environmental Technologies (CT)  Biological Technologies (BT)  Smart Health (SH) and Biomedical (BM) Technologies  Topical fit is much less important than the technical and commercial requirements of the solicitation!
