I'm excited to announce that The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Xogo with a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant. This grant will help us expand our work in the disabilities field, providing an affordable, intuitive way for people with disabilities to connect whatever devices work best for them. With the SBIR grant, we will continue helping people with disabilities connect with their technology more easily.
“NSF is proud to support the technology of the future by thinking beyond incremental developments and funding the most creative, impactful ideas across all markets and areas of science and engineering,” Andrea Belz, Division Director of the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships at NSF, said. “With the support of our research funds, any deep technology startup or small business can guide basic science into meaningful solutions that address tremendous needs.”
We are excited to continue bringing those meaningful solutions to the disability community. “Being funded by the National Science Foundation is validation that what we’re working on has a lot of merit. We look forward to continuing our work with support from the NSF,” CEO Ray Abel said.
Only ten percent of applicants were accepted for this grant, and we're honored to be among the organizations chosen this year. You can check us out on the NSF website here.
