SBIR Gateway

About the
SBIR Insider Newsletter

The SBIR Insider newsletter started out two decades ago as an outgrowth of the SBIR Gateway web site. It became apparent that small businesses, federal agencies, prime contractors and even Congress, needed a mechanism to be informed of what was happening in the SBIR community.

Although there are several fine SBIR newsletters and alerts available, none were prepared to tackle the tough and controversial issues that sometimes arise in the SBIR/STTR program arena.

When in the best interests of small businesses and the SBIR/STTR program, the SBIR Gateway has challenged the agencies, prime contractors, lobbyists, industry organizations and even Congress. Over the years we have built up a network of insider professionals offering various perspectives on problems, challenges and solutions. The SBIR Insider newsletter allows you to receive this information without having to frequently visit the web site.

The SBIR Gateway accepts no funding for these services, does not compete for SBIR/STTR awards nor sell services to SBIR companies. All subscriber's email addresses are considered privileged information and not shared nor used for any of commercial interests.

Although we try our best to give you updated and accurate information, you should go to the official SBIR/STTR agency websites for legal and accurate programmatic rules and information to participate in the SBIR/STTR programs. Links to their sites can be found here and also the official SBIR website

We welcome your comments and participation.
