Oregon’s SBIR/STTR Success Rate
The federal government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) awards program started in 1983. Since then, several hundred Oregon companies have earned grants from agencies of the federal government to fund their research and development (R&D) efforts. Although these grants are not easy to get, many Oregon companies have been successful in developing winning proposals to fund their R&D for bringing new technologies to market.
Since 2008, Oregon businesses have received $69 million in SBIR/STTR grants for research and development.
Here are the totals for successful proposals by Oregon businesses since 1983:
Number of SBIR/STTR Awards for Oregon companies:
1,131 for phase I,
514 for phase II
Number of Oregon companies receiving SBIR/STTR awards: 277
Total dollar amount for these awards: $463,755,312
