The Small Business Administration’s Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program is designed to support programs that advance innovative, technology-driven small businesses. The Arizona Commerce Authority has partnered with the Small Business Administration (SBA) to facilitate the FAST program in Arizona.
Arizona’s FAST program provides funds, resources, training, and network opportunities to help entrepreneurs succeed in their Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) proposal. The program gives startups more competitive bids for federally-funded innovation and research and development programs.
Round six FAST Program applications are currently being accepted through Monday, July 10, 2023.
