Since 2013, we have helped organizations secure several million in funding for our clients. We have experience in developing and crafting high-quality highly-competitive proposals to foundations, corporate grantmakers, and government funders at every level.
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 ~$100 for every $1 spent.
Detailed below is SOME of our success with funding surrounding innovation that has strong commercialization potential. This is not all of our successes. We update this as we find out from our clients – award notification for most clients comes 6 to 8 months after submitting proposals. We are always mindful of our client’s privacy and have signed NDA’s with many of them; therefore, we do not publish their information on our website. We are always happy to chat about specific successes during a consult call.
Additionally, outside of SBIR/STTR and economic development-focused proposals, we do have extensive experience with some of the following federal agencies and focus areas. If you do not see an agency listed, we do encourage you to ask us about it.
