Regional Technology Development Centers (RTDCs)


NYSTAR manages and coordinates efforts for a network of 10 independent, not-for-profit organizations, Regional Technology Development Centers (RTDCs) to cultivate the growth of high-tech industry and help smaller manufacturers modernize. The organizations share a common commitment to providing direct, strategic assistance to companies in the areas of entrepreneurship, technology commercialization, product development, high-tech business incubator management and technology transfer services. The RTDCs provide entrepreneurial and business assistance, financing and venture capital information, Federal research grant information and assistance. RTDCs receive both Federal and State financial support.
The RTDCs also can provide businesses with assistance for Federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) solicitations/awards. Assistance can span application assistance to soliciting university partners to enhance applications.


The RTDC program is competitively awarded, and assistance from any of the 10 Centers can be sought on an on-going basis directly from the RTDC or by contacting NYSTAR.
