How we can help

We work with entrepreneurs, inventors, startups, and small businesses who are in the early stages of developing their company and products. We primarily help those who are working on innovative solutions to health-related problems.

Funding

We focus on helping inventors, entrepreneurs and startups who are developing medical applications. We help our clients obtain early-stage funding through non-dilutive approaches including Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) proposals. We have extensive experience with most of the US Federal Agencies, but tend to focus on the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Department of Defense (DOD).

Prototyping

We can also help out with prototyping using a variety of precision processing including 3D printing, screen printing, computer-controlled cutting, and laser processing. Just let us know what you are in need of building. If we can't help you out, we can likely guide you to someone who can!

Partnering

We have 20 years experience in developing micro- and nanotechnology for medical applications, particularly within the startup environment. If you need a partner to bring your idea to the market, then we can see if we're a good fit. If we can't help, then we can check our partner network.

Our clients have a broad spectrum of knowledge and expertise including mobile health, smartphone apps, neurotechnology, biomaterials, and drug delivery to name a few.

"In 2010, Gareth pulled together disparate spreadsheet info and verbiage into a coherent, logical grant request package for submission to to DARPA on time. This wasn't easy, considering that there were three separate learning institutions involved, together with our little company. If you need similar help responding to governmental grant request, I don't hesitate to recommend Gareth."
