About TechSource: Commercialization
Colorado SBDC TechSource: Commercialization is designed to maximize the economic potential of Colorado science and technology companies—especially those in the advanced industries.
Subject matter expertise is provided through specialized consulting, accelerator programs, workshops and events to provide tangible help for small innovative businesses and entrepreneurs in order to overcome hurdles to growth.
Companies can benefit at every stage of maturity—from those just starting out with a great idea, to experienced innovators and second-stage businesses looking to expand.
TechSource: Commercialization is unique in the state because of its heavy emphasis on non-dilutive capital sources for small innovative businesses—where the company does not give up ownership—while also preparing companies for equity financing when the timing is right. Programs focus on SBIR/STTR grants, federal R&D tax credits and support for technology commercialization to get to market faster (the ideal non-dilutive capital, from customers)!
The SBDC TechSource program also consists of the Cyber: CYA program, which helps solve the cybersecurity needs of small and medium sized businesses at all levels. Focus areas range from cloud computing and security measures using social media, to securing technology to meet compliance standards in government contracting.
The Commercialization program is made possible by funding from the Federal And State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program, the City of Boulder, Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the US Small Business Administration and VISA.
