This free service helps clients increase their potential for federal SBIR/STTR funding approval. Our multidisciplinary panels mimic the federal agency’s review process and taps reviewers with experience in SBIR/STTR funding, technology commercialization and/or technical expertise. Our goal is to provide you with actionable recommendations regarding your draft ahead of your SBIR/STTR submission deadline.
This is intended to be a high-level review of proposals in final draft form.
