Proposal development & commercialization assistance

Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs

SBIR/STTR Proposal Development

BioPrime works with small businesses to develop competitive proposals. This service typically is a 2-3 month commitment which includes communication with agency program management, identifying funding opportunities, and scoping out the project objectives and technical milestones. Once the focus of the project is clear we will work with you to draft all the sections of the application package including budget development, commercialization plan (including necessary market research, production and regulatory strategies, value proposition, competitive advantage, etc), and even helping you decide what types of strategic letters of support to include. As work nears completion, we conduct an agency-style pre-submission review and once all looks final and ready, we take care of preparing and submitting the application.

A la Carte Services 

DUE DILIGENCE: The SBIR and STTR programs vary in substantial ways among the 11 Government Agencies and Departments that administer them. Not sure whether your invention is a good fit for the SBIR or STTR programs or which Government agency might be interested in funding your technology research and development? Perhaps you are also wondering whether the Government can be your first customer? We have the insider insights and real-world experiences to help you navigate the complexities and develop a practical and clear action plan to move forward. 

PRE-SUBMISSION REVIEW: For established companies, we provide pre-submission proposal review to ensure quality and correct proposal item packaging. This includes critiquing unfunded proposals for improvement and re-submission.

In this education-based service, the company can set the scope of work and level of details and we will provide tailored workshop training to accommodate application readiness.

Client Feedback

"I've written funded grants before, but Lenka showed me how it should really be done. Being a former NIH insider with extensive experience, Lenka knows the ins and outs, and subtle nuances of NIH SBIR grants - the unwritten rules of what it takes to get your grant funded from talking to the right people to creating a favorable impression for the grant. She even helps you negotiate with subcontractors. She is highly organized and thorough (keeping track of all aspects of a grant and not missing a single item), and worked on the grant preparation as hard as I did... Needless to say, she got my grant funded with an exceptional score. I recommend Lenka highly because I don't think there is another consultant who is as deeply knowledgeable about SBIR grants and works as hard to help you. I would say she is very high return on investment for grant applications."
