TechLink recently completed the first-ever comprehensive analysis of the economic impacts of a federal SBIR program, in collaboration with the Business Research Division of the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder.  The study examined the economic outcomes and impacts from all 4,524 Air Force Phase II SBIR/STTR contracts to 1,750 firms completed during the 2000-2013 period, with a 96% response rate.
