Proposal Writing Assistance
The Innovation Partnership (IPart) offers assistance to technology-driven companies in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in preparing high quality SBIR/STTR grant proposals for submission to federal funding agencies.
A Pre-Proposal Technical Review is offered to those applicants whose proposal concepts are judged to have strong potential for competing successfully in a federal competition. This program offers a no-cost opportunity to receive valuable feedback from professional reviewers on planned Phase I proposal concepts. All proposal concepts under review are fully protected by non-disclosure agreements to ensure confidentiality of proprietary information.
The IPart continues to offer it’s highly successful and valuable, no-cost, Pre-Proposal Technical Review (PPAP) to SBIR/STTR interested clients. Application to the Technical Review Programs are “by invitation only,” and it is therefore essential for interested applicants to contact a Program Sponsor early in their SBIR/STTR identification process and work with them closely to receive the greatest benefits from the technical review.
