We now know that all of our clients that completed NSF SBIR’s newly required Project Pitch received an official invitation from NSF to submit a full proposal because of our efforts. We developed language, recommend modifications for improvement, and advised on specific approach techniques for each of our clients submitting. As a result, each and every single client (7 clients) that came to us for support and guidance for the newly required Project Pitch were invited to submit full proposals.
We know that each project pitch met the program’s objectives to support innovative technologies that show promise of commercial and/or societal impact and involve a level of technical risk. The newly required NSF SBIR/STTR Project Pitch allows startups and small businesses to get quick feedback at the start of their application for Phase I funding from America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF. Startups or entrepreneurs who submit a Project Pitch will know within three weeks if they meet the program’s objectives to support innovative technologies that show promise of commercial and/or societal impact and involve a level of technical risk.
If Project Pitch is a good fit for the program, the prospective applicants will receive an official invitation from NSF to submit a full proposal.
Our fingers are crossed for each of them as we are waiting to hear the outcomes of the full proposals. Stay tuned.
