SBIR Support


No-Cost Coaching for Ventures Building their Proof-of-Concept

Since 2012, MassVentures has been supporting Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) winners through its START program, which provides matching funds for Phase II winners.

We coach nascent ventures that are submitting SBIR and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) proposals. so that they learn the best practices of proposal writing and execution. We offer strategy and alignment sessions, work plan and commercialization plan feedback/analysis, budget compliance analysis, and final review through one-on-one meetings. We also have an array of specialized rubrics and examples.

MassVentures helps teams win with all agencies, including DOE, DOD, NSF, NIH, NASA, EPA and NIST. The win rate for our teams is 52%, more than three times higher than the nominal win rate of 15%.

To access our no-cost SBIR coaching, we ask that you first watch the four short SBIR learning videos at our Commercialization Accelerator: Learning pathway Fundraising. Module 2: Non-dilutive funds SBIR.

The Commercialization Accerator is free, but you need to register for the site.
