The Center for Technology Commercialization (CTC), housed in the University of Wisconsin-Extension, assists Wisconsin technology-based small businesses in their efforts to obtain R&D funding necessary to advance the commercialization of their technologies.

Eligible companies can apply for a micro-grant, funded by WEDC, to obtain the services of a qualified provider to develop competitive proposals for federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program grants, which fund research and development activities of innovative small businesses in the U.S.

In addition to SBIR/STTR assistance, CTC consultants provide assistance with business and commercialization planning, as well as market research supporting the development of such plans.
