NCBIO encourages North Carolina lawmakers to support the creation and growth of early-stage businesses to help replenish the pool of small businesses decimated by the pandemic and more rapidly restore economic prosperity. The One North Carolina Small Business Program is an existing, proven and successful vehicle of economic development for early stage companies.
The One North Carolina Small Business Program helps small, innovation-based companies in the state cross the “Valley of Death” — the gap between innovation and the marketplace.
SBIR and STTR awards are part of a long-standing and well-regarded federal program that provides about $2 billion in grants to assist with small business innovation and the commercialization of basic R&D.
