Partners

Partners play a critical role in transitioning advanced technologies from SBIR/STTR funded programs to the commercial market. Partnering with an SBIR/STTR funded small business provides you with immediate access to innovative, advanced technologies that have already been vetted having been through a competitive award process. These are cutting-edge technologies that can help you reach your company’s net-zero and sustainability goals. Many are disruptive looking to enter emerging markets. Joining with an SBIR/STTR awardee provides access to sole-source opportunities as well as small business set asides owing to diverse awardee pools.

Applied Nanotech Inc.

FACTS

PHASE III SUCCESS

Commercial revenues in the form of technology licensing and private sales for a total of nearly $4.5M over a 3 year period.

IMPACT

ANI nanoparticle ink technology offers an inexpensive alternative to depositing front or back contacts on solar cell wafers 180-micron-thin or less, yielding 30% efficiency increase.

Clinical Micro Sensors

FACTS

PHASE III SUCCESS

After a DOE SBIR Phase II award, Clinical Micro Sensors obtained venture capital investments, leading to an acquisition and subsequent creation of GenMark Diagnostics, a publicly traded company.

IMPACT

A unique molecular diagnostic system invented at Caltech was developed with support from DOE SBIR and is currently sold in hospitals and clinical laboratories worldwide.

Giner

FACTS

PHASE III SUCCESS

Giner has achieved over $4M in sales of products developed through DOE SBIR awards, and is now planning the manufacturing stage of complete electrolyzer stacks.

IMPACT

Giner has developed on-site hydrogen refueling stations which can generate up to 200 kg of hydrogen/day—enough for nearly 50 refills per day.

Twelve (formerly OPUS 12)

FACTS

PHASE III SUCCESS

Five years after its start, Opus 12 has successfully leveraged DOE SBIR to raise nearly $19M in VC and private sector investment.

IMPACT

Opus 12 technology uses renewable electricity and water to recycle industry CO2 into valuable chemicals. This process could theoretically address one third of global energy-related CO₂ emissions.

Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD)

FACTS

PHASE III SUCCESS

RMD launched a novel scintillation material, CLYC, in October 2014. CLYC is used in a variety of radiation detection instruments including Spectroscopic Personal Radiation Detection instruments (SPRDs). CLYC crystal/detector sales are currently at more than $1M/year and are expected to increase considerably in the coming years.

IMPACT

With dual neutron and gamma ray detection, CLYC provides a uniquely flexible tool for nuclear event-site first responders and for monitoring unauthorized nuclear materials.

Telescent, Inc.

FACTS

PHASE III SUCCESS

While working on their 3rd SBIR Award, Telescent reported $5M in product sales and $13M in Angel investments, a 5X return on the SBIR investment. Product sales are projected to reach $250M in 4 years.

IMPACT

Using innovative algorithms and special robotic designs, Telescent has introduced a fiber optic cross-connect capable of automating the physical layer of fiber optic connections in data centers, eliminating current inefficiencies linked to manual operations.
