The Center for Technology Commercialization has been an invaluable resource in helping us secure SBIR grant funds for our health technology start-up. In particular, the SBIR Advance program provided both funds and coaching to support development of our commercialization strategy. The employees of CTC really engaged with us, simultaneously providing advice and holding us accountable to do the hard work necessary to create a strong plan. In the process, we learned specifics about our customers' needs that led us to change our approach to the product. Ultimately we were awarded a Phase II grant worth $1.5 million over two years. There is no doubt in my mind that support from CTC made a real differenceï¿½ï¿½ï¿½in our grant application and in the value of the product we are developing.
