Technology Grants for Small Business

Stony Brook University’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is administering a program to provide matching funds for laboratory equipment to successful Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant recipients throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties.  

The Program is funded by an incentive package offered by New York State’s Empire State Development Agency to the Stony Brook University Research Foundation and agreed upon in a contract signed May 2, 2014. These matching grants will reimburse up to 20% of the cost for eligible laboratory equipment purchased by SBIR winning companies up to a maximum of $50,000.


The current time limit of opportunity to apply to the Stony Brook SBDC is April 30, 2020. If all the funds are not expended by that time, the April 2020 date may be extended. Therefore, future SBIR awards, including those currently applied for, may also be eligible for the matching funds.


If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact us at 631-632-9084 for an appointment.  If you have questions about the matching grant prior to making an appointment, please email us at
