If your small technology company can use funding for its R&D projects, 
and your technology area falls within the DoD’s mission, check out the 
DoD’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.  Under its new 
policy -- the SBIR "Fast Track", DoD will give its highest priority in 
making SBIR awards to small companies that are able to attract 
independent third-party investors -- such as venture capital firms, large 
companies, or "angel" investors.  If selected for award, your company 
will receive uninterrupted DoD funding over a two-and-a-half year period. 
In practice, this means an investor who offers to help fund an 
early-stage technology project at a small company can obtain a match of 
between $1 and $4 in DoD SBIR funds for every $1 the investor puts in.
