What is Phase 0/00

The Phase 0/00 is a Wyoming micro-seed award that can be used for:

  • communication with and travel to targeted federal agencies,
  • consultants and mentor services for preparation of the Phase I/II proposal,
  • proposal preparation and review,
  • communications with potential customers and development of a commercialization strategy,
  • analyses to support test data preparation,
  • acquisition of test data for inclusion in the Phase I/II proposal,
  • and other activities related to preparing award winning Phase I/II proposals.

Phase 0 Program

Wyoming small businesses or individuals planning to submit a Phase I to any of the eleven participating federal agencies are eligible to apply for a Phase 0. 

Proposals are due by 5:00 pm on the first and 15th of every month. Awards are generally announced two weeks after the submission date.

Clients who receive a Phase 0 select an experienced Wyoming Phase 0 mentor, a successful SBIR or STTR Principal Investigator (PI) to assist them with the application process and provide two full reviews of their Phase I proposal.
