SBIR / STTR Training and Resources


Arizona Commerce Authority Innovation Network


The Arizona Commerce Authority has partnered with community organizations across the state to provide early-stage ventures, startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses with a collection of training and resources to navigate the SBIR/STTR application process.


Through the ACA Innovation Network (ACA IN), entrepreneurs have access to free, virtual training courses and a mentor network. The training modules address the SBIR/STTR solicitation of proposals, the proposal preparation and evaluation process, intellectual property and accounting considerations. 


In addition, ACA IN plays host to a statewide, expert mentorship network. Founders and entrepreneurs may search for mentors with relevant industry and functional expertise to receive advice and support in growing their business.
