Organizations & Initiatives
SSTI has created a national database of TBED organizations and initiatives, including more than 2,000 organizations that offer assistance to high-tech entrepreneurs. In order to be eligible for inclusion, an organization must receive public support, or be classified as a nonprofit, and offer direct assistance to technology companies and professionals. The database provides contact information, web addresses, and a brief description of the organization. Entries includes links to information about relevant sub-organizations and programs.

This work/research was funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and SSTI members. The contents of this publication are solely the responsibility of the Grantee.

If you would like to suggest an organization or initiative for inclusion, click here.

Organizations are classified by category, which identifies what sort of entity that are. Both organizations and initiatives are indexed by the types of services they provide. The advanced search page allows you to search by category and/or service type. A full glossary of category and definitions is available here. Click on any of the terms below to view its definition.
