Utah Technology Innovation Funding

Utah Technology Innovation Funding (UTIF) is a program to support Utah small companies in their efforts to develop novel technology and products through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Utah applicants and winners can apply for microgrants and nonrecourse loans.

Eligible Phase I applicants may seek microgrants to offset the costs of writing an SBIR/STTR proposal.

Eligible Phase I winners may seek nonrecourse loans to help bridge the gap between Phase I and Phase II SBIR/STTR R&D efforts.
