Date:6/11/2013

HOUSTON, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The NSBRI Industry Forum today announced a new funding opportunity for small U.S. companies with biomedical products that hold promise for use in space.

The NSBRI Industry Forum has initiated a new grant funding program for small, U.S.-based companies who are in, or have graduated from, business accelerators.  NSBRI is partnering with prominent business accelerators in the biotechnology, health and health-IT sectors to identify the best and brightest candidates for the program, which seeks innovative solutions to the health care challenges inherent to spaceflight. Companies, in partnership with sponsoring accelerators, can submit applications for the SMARTCAP-Accel program from June 11, 2013 through July 22, 2013, online at www.smartcap.org.

Launched today at a joint media event with the Office of Economic Growth and Innovation of the City of Louisville, Kentucky, and its new accelerator XLerateHealth, the SMARTCAP-Accel program marks an expansion of NSBRI's already highly successful SMARTCAP program. Like the original program, SMARTCAP-Accel will offer small U.S. companies the opportunity to receive non-dilutive project funding and collaboration opportunities with NSBRI and its research partners.

Project budgets ranging from $10,000 to $200,000 will be considered, but to maximize program funds all SMARTCAP-Accel grants must be matched with new investments from another funding source.

Dr. Dorit Donoviel, NSBRI's Industry Forum Lead, believes that this program, a partnership between government, academia and industry, will advance products in a more cost-efficient and timely manner. "Administering healthcare in s
