Need a Little Change?
We can help.
Sometimes All You Need to Change the World is a Little Support.
We're dedicated to helping science and technology-focused innovators solve our nation's greatest challenges by leveraging the Small Business Innovation & Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs (SBIR/STTR) as a tool to launch a small business.
We're committed to transforming Oklahoma into a leader of innovation by inspiring women, minority, disabled, veteran, and socially or economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs to help build our ecosystem and see Oklahoma thrive as a top ten state for innovation.
We utilize a strong and diverse network of partners including higher education institutions, state agencies, chambers of commerce, economic development organizations, and nonprofits that enable us to extend our reach and provide free services statewide.
Our expertise in the SBIR/STTR arena guides companies through every step of submitting a competitive proposal while providing hands-on technical and business assistance and mentorship on how to use SBIR funding to grow a business and launch new products.
