Small Business Technology Investment Fund (SBTIF) 


This program provides direct venture capital investments to early stage high technology companies, and offers technical assistance to companies through the University resources available through NYSTAR’s statewide network.   The SBTIF also has invested in two Regional Seed Funds and works to foster seed investing in collaboration with Angel and other interested regional investors.
SBTIF often partners with other venture firms when making investments, and will provide technical assistance to start up companies even if SBTIF does not make a direct investment.


Interested companies should contact NYSTAR directly or fill out an application on NYSTAR’s website.
