Start with Phase 0/00

What is Phase 0/00

NOTE: Due to the State of Wyoming budget situation the Phase 0/00 Contract amount has been reduced to reflect budget reductions to the Wyoming SBIR/STTR Iniative Program.  Additional cuts may be necessary as the State's budget situation changes.

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, 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 fifteenth 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.
