We specialize in securing non-dilutive funding for start-ups through the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR), Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR), and other government research funding programs.
We work with start-ups, universities, venture capital firms and economic development programs to match small innovative companies and technologies with funding opportunities. Using our proven track record of creating winning SBIR/STTR proposals, we turn those opportunities into realities.
The Federal Government will spend over $2.5 billion on SBIR and STTR awards this year.
The SBIR/STTR program can be a key component of a start-up’s financing plan; allowing them to bridge the “valley of death” and de-risk technology without diluting ownership and control.
For this reason, the SBIR/STTR programs are very competitive - only about 1 out of 8 Phase I submissions receive awards.
This is where InteliSpark adds value - we help submit the most competitive proposal possible. We offer an array of services ranging from proposal coaching and review to complete proposal development and writing services.
We offer assistance in many areas, including:
- creating and identifying SBIR and non-SBIR funding opportunities
- complete proposal development services
- proposal coaching, review, and critique
- market and competitive research
- general business development consulting
- partnering and team building
- business plan development

Unlike most of our competitors, we don't work on an hourly fee basis. We work on a combination of a project fee and incentive fee.
Our fixed project fees make sense for small businesses that need to operate lean control costs. We are so convinced that we can significantly improve your ability to win an SBIR/STTR award that a large portion of our fee will be contingent upon success.
