SBA Awards FAST Grants to Six Southeast Businesses
The U.S. Small Business Administration recently issued grant awards up to $125,000 each to six organizations in the southeastern United States for specialized training, mentoring and technical assistance for research and development-focused small businesses.
The grants are part of the Federal and State Technology Partnership Program, which aims to improve outcomes in the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Programs for underserved communities, a release from SBA says.

Southeastern recipients this year include state and local economic development organizations, accelerators and colleges and universities. All awardees will provide support to small businesses developing advanced technologies.
The six FAST grantees are Innovation Gateway at the University of Georgia, the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation, Launch TN in Tennessee, First Flight Venture Center, Inc. in North Carolina, the University of South Carolina and Jackson-based Innovate Mississippi.
