Abstract:

The General Accounting Office conducted interviews and developed a profile of the 19 firms, obtained a description of their research work and experiences with the SBIR Small Business Innovative Research program, and identified efforts these firms were making to commercialize products or services developed with SBIR funding. The information collected was from firms receiving awards in fiscal years 1983 and 1984. To obtain additional information about commercialization of products developed with SBIR funding, we interviewed officials at eight venture capital firms and three experts on small business innovation.
