NM FAST offers a wide range of services to clients in their pursuit of SBIR/STTR funding. Over the life of the program, NM FAST has developed a workflow to assist clients in every aspect of SBIR/STTR proposal development. We can match you with the most appropriate agency and topic based on your innovation, help put you in contact with relevant program managers, provide you with tools and resources that guide you through agency requirements and proposal management, match qualified small businesses with service providers through limited micro-grants, and review and critique proposal packages before submission. The only service NM FAST doesn’t provide is content creation. You know your operation and innovation best.

NM FAST also provides focused workshops on a variety of SBIR/STTR topics.

As infrastructure permits, these workshops are simulcasted live through the Internet and recorded to be posted to our YouTube channel. 

Past workshops have included:

  • General program overview
  • Special focus on particular agencies with federal program managers
  • Accounting and budgeting a proposal
  • Commercializing your technology

Since NM FAST is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration, these services are free to participating small businesses. Apply today to see how the NM FAST program can help you put together a complete and compelling SBIR/STTR proposal package.
