Small Business Technology and Commercialization

Vermont Small Business Development Center

Developing a novel innovation?
Start out right by talking to an expert.

At VtSBDC we are here to help technology-driven entrepreneurs and businesses gain a competitive advantage when looking for research and development funds or trying to commercialize their innovation.

As part of our overall business assistance service, the Technology and Commercialization Advisor provides one-on-one advising to:

  • Identify funding opportunities for research and development funds.
  • Provide guidance with Vermont EPSCoR applications.
  • Assistance with applications for Small Business Innovation Research ('SBIR') or Federal Small Business Technology Transfer ('STTR') programs.
  • Instruction on how to communicate your innovation to others without releasing essential Intellectual Property.
  • Finding resources that may be needed to round out an innovation.
  • Guidance to prepare and meet Angel and VC investors.
