Need help with Grant Writing?

We can help with all aspects of grant writing and proposal preparation.

Looking for help with your next SBIR/STTR or economic development grant proposal?

Looking for funding? Funding that won't take equity from your start-up or business? We help organizations locate non-dilutive funding. Funding can include grants, pitch competitions, accelerators, and so much more.

We work with high-growth for-profit (startups & small businesses) that have a goal to implement innovative STEM-based solutions to various social, cultural, or environmental issues

These companies are typically in the pre-seed or seed stage, have founders that have domain expertise and a great team, have evidence of early traction, have revenue or a clear path to revenue within 12/18 months, and a strong value proposition.


We are non-dilutive capital funding experts and know what reviewers are looking in a high-quality fundable proposal.

Since 2013, we have helped organizations secure more than $60M in funding for our clients.

On average, we provide a return of ~$58 for every $1 spent on SBIR/STTR Phase I proposal preparation costs. For other federal funding, outside of SBIR/STTR - where the proposal budgets are multi-year, we provide a return well over a ~$100 for every $1 spent.

Here are just a few of our past successes.
