The Idaho Small Business Development Center (SBDC) wants Idaho businesses to succeed. Because of this goal, the Idaho Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) was born. PTAC is a remarkable resource for Idahoan startup companies in the Technology sector. The Idaho PTAC is an educational resource. Their goal? demystifying government-funded capital in the form of grants. The PTAC tracks and reports on federal bid opportunities. Because PTAC alerts companies whenever relevant opportunities arise, this is one mailing list you want to join. The Idaho SBDC PTAC includes free registration and workshops about applying for some of the over $150,000,000 granted to small business technology companies last year.
Idaho PTAC: Growing small business AND the economy
Last year, 843 organizations received awards and the SBDC PTAC wants to see that number grow this year to include even more small businesses. This program helps small businesses expand and test innovative new technology through Phase I and Phase II SBIR and SBTT grants. Because PTAC invests in local business it revitalizes and diversifies the economy in the state of Idaho. Register your small business and you can sign up for alerts. Whenever funding opportunities have published that fit your business profile you’ll be notified. And the PTAC also helps small businesses prepare successful grants.
One Goal, Lots of Options
Because space is limited it is recommended you contact the PTAC immediately. You can visit the PTAC website or contact your local SBDC chapter. Not a resident of Idaho? Many opportunities similar to the PTAC exist in other states. Because finding funding can be tricky it is best practice to hire a consulting agency to assist you.
