UW Receives Grant to Help Entrepreneurs Develop Innovations
Thursday, September 05, 2019
Entrepreneurs will continue to receive no-cost support from the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network to research and develop their innovations, thanks to a $125,000 grant awarded to the University of Wyoming.
This is among only 24 federal and state technology grants awarded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) this year. The Wyoming SBDC Network will use the funds to provide outreach, mentoring and technical assistance to entrepreneurs seeking funding through the SBA’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.
The Wyoming SBDC Network’s Wyoming SBIR/STTR Initiative (WSSI) last year helped entrepreneurs win more than $1.7 million in funding through these programs.
