5 SBIR-STTR ASSISTANCE CENTER USTAR s SSAC is a statewide resource providing qualified Utah businesses assistance and insights into all the elements of the SBIR-STTR process. The SBIR and STTR programs are the largest source of seed funding with more than $2.5 billion dollars invested annually. Working with USTAR s SSAC, the chances of winning increase to more than 25% (the national average is 14-17%). The SSAC offers assistance with: Searching and matching your concept with agency solicitations Finding a champion on the inside Editing and writing assistance Submission Workshops and trainings Registrations with agencies Identifying gaps and solutions

6 U S TA R I N C U B AT I O N E N T E R P R I S E Tech Incubators: As part of the state-wide effort, USTAR manages two technology incubators to assist start-up companies in maturing and commercializing their technology by providing access to specialized equipment to serve life science and aerospace/defense technology sectors. USTAR focuses on providing support to early stage startups in developing their minimum viable products, proof of concept, prototyping, product validation, product development, and connecting research with industry and funding. Core Facilities: USTAR established two state-of-the-art research buildings which provide research space, core facilities and specialized equipment for prototyping and fundamental research. These facilities are available to both university researchers and commercial partners.
