“The course give excellent guidance, both from a process and a content standpoint. Presenting written abstracts was an excellent idea; it gave people an idea of what is required of a good abstract, and hopefully an understanding of the importance of having a well written abstract.” Course Attendee

“The entire pre-seminar checklist for getting registered was enormously helpful, as was the homework for developing the abstract.  The budget discussion was eye opening, and the peer review session was outstanding!”   –  Course Attendee

“It helped greatly to have further insight into the process, and to walk me through the application. Most SBIR training is broad in scope and they are never able to truly touch on the reviewing component.”  – Course Attendee

The course helped tremendously to understand the scoring system and as a result to better position our resubmission. Great insights!”  Course Attendee
