The Department of Defense’s (DoD) SBIR program has a Fast Track process for projects that attract matching cash from outside investors for the Phase II SBIR effort as well as for the interim between Phases I and II. This streamlining focuses SBIR funding on innovations that are most likely to be developed into products that the DoD and other entities will buy.
To further encourage the transition of SBIR research into DoD acquisition programs and the private sector, each DoD component has its own Phase II enhancement policy. Under this policy, the component provides a Phase II awardee with additional SBIR funding if the company can match the additional funds with non-SBIR money from DoD acquisition programs or the private sector.
JHEverson Consulting will guide your SBIR proposal so it has the best chance of achieving Fast Track support and Phase II enhancement.
