Choose VIKRITI as your TABA Vendor

What is SBIR/STTR?

“The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are highly competitive programs that encourage domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for commercialization.”

What is TABA?

To support companies in commercializing their SBIR and STTR-funded activities, the “Technical and Business Assistance” (TABA) supplement was authorized under the John McCain National Defense Authorization Act in 2018.

TABA allows companies applying for SBIR/STTR Phase 1 or 2 to opt-in (during the proposal process with participating agencies) to receive additional funds; $6,500 for Phase 1 awards and up to $50,000 for Phase 2 awards. For SBIR/STTR recipients, these TABA funds allow companies to receive support—either in-kind through their funding agencies, or to hire veteran vendors like VIKRITI who provide a one-stop-shop for business support services—that will help them commercialize their product.

Why Select VIKRITI as Your TABA Vendor?

VIKRITI is uniquely positioned with the resources and processes in place to serve as an experienced TABA vendor for SBIR/STTR recipients. From 2020-2021 VIKRITI served as the sole vendor conducting all of the National Institute of Health’s (NIH) TABA 1 Assessments and is now branching out to provide a variety of assessment services for both Phase 1 and Phase 2 SBIR/STTR recipients.
