Dawnbreaker administers the DOE’s SBIR/STTR Phase 0 Assistance Program. The program’s goal is to support the DOE’s efforts to increase SBIR/STTR Phase I grant applications from, and ultimately make more awards to, small business concerns owned by women, minorities, and all small business concerns located in underrepresented states. For the purpose of this program, the DOE has classified among others Mississippi and Louisiana as under-represented states.

The core premise of the program is to identify under-represented SBC’s and provide comprehensive assistance with the preparation of their SBIR/STTR Phase I proposals such that they will be compelling to the DOE reviewers. The DOE SBIR/STTR Phase 0 Assistance Program is designed to augment assistance efforts by universities, state organizations, and other associations. Importantly, the services are offered at no charge to qualified small businesses. This includes university faculty, post-docs, and graduate students who do not have a small business now, but will have one at the time the award is granted.

A brief description of the Phase 0 Assistance program can be found at: http://www.dawnbreaker.com/doephase0/webinarfiles/DOE_Phase_0.pdf
