Get Your Energy Startup Funded by the Department of Energy

Join us for an overview of the Department of Energy’s funding program for early-stage energy startups and how VertueLab can help you win.



Did you know that the federal government has programs in place that provide non-dilutive funding to proprietary technology startups? These programs are called Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) which encourage small businesses to engage in federal R&D with the potential for commercialization.
VertueLab has helped startups win over $9 million in these federal grants and we want to help your energy startup access them too!
Join us for this overview of the Department of Energy SBIR/STTR program featuring DOE’s Outreach Program Manager, Eileen Chant.
At this event you’ll learn:

Key information on DOE’s SBIR/STTR program (including proposal preparation advice)

Upcoming schedules and national resources available to you

Hear tips and tricks from northwest companies that have won DOE grants
