One N.C. Small Business Program

The One North Carolina Small Business Program is comprised of two programs: the North Carolina SBIR/STTR Phase I Incentive Funds Program and the SBIR/STTR Phase I Matching Funds Program.     

The purpose of the Phase I Incentive Funds Program is to reimburse qualified North Carolina businesses for a portion of the costs incurred in preparing and submitting Phase I Proposals to the Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program. This program is not currently operating. 

The Phase I Matching Funds Program is designed to award matching funds to North Carolina businesses who have been awarded a SBIR or STTR Phase I award. This program is currently operating (see FY 2015 solicitation below).
