Bridging the gap from science to products  

There are several sources of grants to small businesses for new-product development.  Most notable is the US government's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program (see links at right).

I have extensive, successful grant-writing experience plus the science background to understand your technology, and I can assist your proposal development in the following ways:  
  • Skilled technical literature searches to find references that support your concept and show your understanding of current state-of-the-art.  (I have electronic access to most science and engineering journals).
  •  Organization and layout of proposal to meet the funding source's requirements and present the superiority of your approach as clearly as possible.
  • Writing of text in collaboration with your staff.
  • Budget assistance if desired.
Your Intellectual Property can be safeguarded with an appropriate Non-Disclosure Agreement.
