Our technology specialists can help with:
- Identification of and application to funding and financing resources
- Strategic, business, and financial planning
- Intellectual property
SBTDC consultants are familiar with methods of raising capital for early-stage companies and routinely assist with access to capital through equity and banks and provide support for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBTT) program grants.
We also provide ongoing technology business training opportunities.
