About the Kentucky SBIR/STTR Resource Center

About the Kentucky SBIR/STTR Resource Center

The Kentucky SBIR/STTR Resource Center offers to help Kentucky innovators, entrepreneurs, and technology-oriented small businesses (i.e. 500 or fewer people) who have an innovative concept and need to advance it, translate it into a product or a technology for commercialization, and profit from it.

The assistance is to help prepare you and your Kentucky-based company* to succeed in the highly competitive Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Grant Programs. These grants allow businesses to conduct feasibility studies in Phase I (up to $150,000) and development of a prototype in Phase II (up to $1,000,000) for eventual commercialization in Phase III using non-federal dollars. Eleven federal agencies participate in the SBIR Program and five participate in the STTR Program.

The Kentucky SBIR/STTR Resource Center offers assistance to qualified Kentucky businesses as the companies walk through the SBIR/STTR process including:

  • A one-on-one consultation,
  • Matching your idea for its best fit with federal agencies,
  • Available resources for businesses,
  • Training on proposal development,
  • Financial assistance for competitive proposal development, and
  • Providing post-award guidance.


See more under "Tools and Resources".

*To register a Kentucky business, or to check on your Kentucky-based organization's status, contact the Kentucky Secretary of State.

Phase Zero / Phase Double Zero

Phase Zero / Phase Double Zero

The Kentucky Science and Engineering Foundation (KSEF) offers the Kentucky SBIR/STTR Phase Zero and Phase Double Zero (PZ-DZ) grant program. These funds are earmarked for the development of Kentucky-based Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) proposals.

Phase Zero - The goal of the SBIR/STTR Phase Zero grant is to assist Kentucky-based new and existing small businesses, and Kentucky's college and university faculty with the preparation of high-quality, competitive Phase I proposals for submission to participating federal SBIR and STTR programs.

Phase Double Zero - The goal of the SBIR/STTR Phase Double Zero grant is to assist Kentucky-based new and existing small businesses with the preparation of high-quality, competitive Phase II proposals for submission to participating federal SBIR and STTR programs. The applicant must have previously received a Phase I Federal Grant to be eligible for a Phase Double Zero grant.

Although participation in the Phase Zero and Double Zero Program is not a requirement for submitting Phase I or Phase II proposals, it is a great way to get ahead of the competition, but only if you are a Kentucky small business. Phase Zero and Phase Double Zero Award Recipients
