SB Alert

Third Place [3 Prizes at $2,000]

Ever tried to sift through the contracting opportunities available to your small business? If you have, you've felt the pain and if you haven't, you're missing out on millions of dollars in opportunities to grow your business.

Small Business Alert for the iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone 7 is meant to take the pain out of finding great contract opportunities by notifying you immediately after new opportunities come out and letting you quickly see if any contracts pertain to your business. Is your company a leading provider in health care technology, or in software, or in electromechanics? Use SB Alert to rapidly sift through all of the open opportunities to find ones that fit with your specialty.

SB Alert also includes PUSH notification of new opportunities as soon as they go live, allowing you to act immediately.

Currently, SB Alert provides opportunities from the Small Business Innovation Research program, but we will be adding more databases in the future.


SB Alert was built by an diverse, enthusiastic team of developers, and was born at #DCWeek 2011 Hackathon.
