Entrepreneurship and innovation prosper when given the funding and support to grow, but securing that funding can often cause headaches for startups. Federal funding for research or product development is a great way to supplement growth initiatives if private funding or local resources can’t fulfill all of a startup’s needs.
Not sure where to look to find these federal openings? One great resource is the SSTI Funding Supplement, a weekly e-newsletter that aggregates funding opportunities at the federal level in one convenient place. The newsletter includes opportunities from the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Defense, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation and Challenge.gov, among others.
