The NASA Alliance for Small Business Opportunity (NASBO) presents another way for small businesses to move their technologies to the end of the innovation pathway. Through NASBO, NASA SBIR companies with commerce-ready technologies are linked with small business service providers, large contractor firms and investors. These resources provide the companies with the boost they need to become investment-ready, reliable, high-tech business competitors.

The NTTC operates in a leadership role for the NASBO chapters by providing information and consultant services to help service oriented companies align themselves with funding sources to create entities to serve the NASA SBIR community in a robust manner.
