Phase III Magazine

Phase III is the ultimate goal of small businesses, Federal agencies and service providers participating in the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Although Phase III is the common goal, confusion abounds regarding its definition. What exactly is Phase III? Does the definition vary depending upon the Agency with which you work? How do you know if you have achieved Phase III status? How do you get there and how do you measure the impact of assistance programs designed to facilitate Phase III success?

This Phase III Commercialization publication is produced by Dawnbreaker and is dedicated to addressing these questions. Our approach cuts across agencies, industries and disciplines, focusing on three broadly defined content areas — medical, energy and defense — as well as highlighting Phase III issues and financing options. Our goal is to provide insight and information to those who are intent on being successful in transitioning, commercializing or infusing their technology into the marketplace.

Enjoy this publication and feel free to send suggestions for future articles of interest to you.

“What Dawnbreaker’s Transition Assistance Program did was allow us to expose technology to a very relevant audience. People who attend these shows, from members of the military, to Navy personnel to contractors are the ideal audience with their technical knowledge.”
