StarMobile®, Inc., the leading codeless, cloud-based solution that delivers enterprise mobility faster, simpler and at a lower cost than any other solution on the planet announced today, at Mobile World Congress, that it was awarded a $500,000 Phase IIB Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue its work towards “Enabling Rapid Mobilization of Enterprise Applications.”
The award is based on progress in product, market, and business model validation under a $750,000 NSF SBIR Phase II grant awarded to StarMobile in 2013, and research conducted under a $150,000 NSF SBIR Phase I grant awarded to StarMobile in 2012. StarMobile has now received a total of $1.4 million in grant awards from the NSF SBIR program as a part of their efforts to foster innovative technologies.
StarMobile is built on pioneering technology (five patents pending) that radically simplifies enterprise mobility by intelligently deriving the mobile app directly from the original application. Within the cloud, the solution employs a revolutionary remote computing protocol called “MORPH” to apply a series of transformations in real-time to render a native mobile experience to the end user. In this manner, StarMobile dynamically transforms any enterprise application into a mobile app.
"This Phase IIB SBIR award is a significant milestone for us, as the rigorous NSF selection process for Phase II proposals results in only 15% of Phase I grants receiving Phase II awards, and even fewer receiving Phase IIB awards," said Raghupathy Sivakumar, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of StarMobile, Inc. "This award is an important validation that StarMobile has created a Rapid Mobile Application Development (RMAD) platform that transforms how the enterprise mobilizes their systems. This award provides support for further development of our core technology and will help us to accelerate our go-to-market plans."
The NSF Small Business Innovation Research / Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) program seeks to transform scientific discovery into societal and economic benefit by catalyzing private sector commercialization of technological innovations. The program increases the incentive and opportunity for startups and small businesses to undertake cutting-edge, high-quality scientific research and development. NSF SBIR/STTR grants go beyond R&D funding; recipients receive training in key business areas and gain mentorship from Program Directors who have extensive industry experience. The NSF SBIR/STTR program funds in every area of science and engineering.
