Technical and Business Assistance (TABA)

Most funding agencies participating in the SBIR/STTR program now offer Technical and Business Assistance (TABA) funding supplemental to your grant’s R&D budget. TABA funds can be used to pay third-party vendors for services like market research, go-to-market strategy development, and commercialization support, which are essential for early-stage startups who may not otherwise have the resources to secure these services.
