America’s Seed Fund for Research and Development
Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Research grants are the nation’s largest source of early stage / high risk funding. These programs from eleven federal agencies make over $3.7 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive capital available to innovative small companies annually. That’s about 5,000 awards per year, and you retain the rights to intellectual property (in most cases).
