Commercializing Technology



Small Business Innovation Research Technology Acceleration Program, known as SBIR-TAP, demystifies the commercialization journey for innovators who want to take their SBIR technology to market. The program’s in-person, hands-on approach allows for an individualized experience that produces results.

Sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), powered by a partnership between Wright Brothers Institute and the EC, you will develop a solid commercialization strategy for your technologies, have the opportunity to showcase your concepts and gain valuable feedback from government and industry leaders and investors. Ultimately, this improves your chances of receiving a Phase II award.
