Welcome to Innovation Station
Where Innovation Meets Opportunity
The Station offers Washington State Innovators connections to networking, funding and technical assistance
Government agencies wrestle with a variety of societal and technical issues that cannot be solved using standard procurement contracting methods. These agencies know the private sector is developing or could develop solutions to many of these issues. Avenues have been created that allow non-traditional suppliers - such as engineers, scientists and research and development firms - to work with government agencies in order to create solutions to a variety of challenges.
Innovation Station is a portal where Washington State based R&D entrepreneurs can learn about these avenues and if their solution could benefit the nation.
You will find at the Station:
Details on the SBIR Seed Fund program as well as other funding opportunities
Universities and Laboratories to partner with
Technical Assistance for navigating the process
Networking and interaction opportunities with fellow innovators
