Welcome to Innovation Station

Where Innovation Meets Opportunity

The Station offers Washington State Innovators connections to networking, funding and technical assistance

Government agencies wrestle with a variety of societal  and technical issues that cannot be solved using standard procurement contracting methods. These agencies know the private sector is developing or could develop solutions to many of these issues. Avenues have been created that allow non-traditional suppliers - such as engineers, scientists and research and development firms - to work with government agencies in order to create solutions to a variety of challenges.   

Innovation Station is a portal where Washington State based R&D entrepreneurs can learn about these avenues and if their solution could benefit the nation. 


You will find at the Station:

  • Details on the SBIR Seed Fund program as well as other funding opportunities

  • Universities and Laboratories to partner with

  • Technical Assistance for navigating the process

  • Networking and interaction opportunities with fellow innovators

About Washington PTAC

Innovation Station is powered by the Washington State PTAC program.

PTAC's (or Procurement Technical Assistance Centers) are located in each state and are funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency. The Washington PTAC is hosted by the Thurston County Economic Development Council.  All PTACs share the same mission: to connect small business owners with government contracting opportunities.
