Technology Help for Small Firms

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is seeking to expand the number of small firms involved in its Technology Assistance Program this fiscal year. Through this program, PNNL funds researchers to provide about a staff-week of effort to address technological needs of small businesses (fewer than 500 employees).

Over the last 12 years, PNNL has conducted some 750 technology assistance projects through this program, with a measured satisfaction rating of 93%. About 85% of the assistance recipients state in surveys that they implemented the advice received in the projects.

This assistance is one of many programs resulting from the Technology Alliances' statewide Associates program. The Tacoma Technology Consortium is TA's Associate in Pierce County.
