Pre-Submission Review Panels

Pre-Submission Expert Panel Reviews

This is a free service we offer to our clients to increase their potential for federal funding approval. These multidisciplinary review panels are assembled to review proposals, discuss comments and provide recommendations regarding draft proposals that are submitted by CTC clients planning to apply for SBIR/STTR funding. Reviewers bring experience in SBIR/STTR funding, technology commercialization and/or technical expertise. This is intended to be a high-level review of proposals in final draft form.
