Team review

The caliber of your team will affect proposal scores—in particular the principal investigator (PI), who should have technical expertise related to the solicitation topic, and your prior commercialization experience. This issue is the second most important topic in an agency’s proposal evaluation, as venture capitalist put great emphasis on who is driving the bus.

As the U.S. Army, for example, uses the evaluation services of a venture capital firm to judge SBIR programs with the best chance of commercialization success, it is important to keep venture capital requirements in mind while crafting a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) proposal.

JHEverson Consulting will review the PI’s credentials, provide an overview of your technology and examine partnering needs among other tasks.
