Gulf Coast Regional Technology Summit

We recently had the great pleasure of attending the Gulf Coast Regional Technology Summit put on by the great people working with the LA & MS FAST (Federal and State Technology) Programs. 

There was a healthy serving of rich discussion during the two-day workshop with the main take-home message being building connections for small businesses to apply for SBIR/STTR funding.

Given that the bulk of the conversation focused around commercialization aspects of the process, there remains a large portion of the proposals (namely Phase I) centered around the scientific/technical quality of proposed research. This is where your statisticians really stretch their legs.

It was noted that most federal grant/contract submissions are funded at a 10-15% success rate. Statisticians (like us!) bolster that success rate as high as 30-35%. We are confident that including a statistician on your team is the easiest way to improve your chances of a successful application.

We have over 10 years of combined experience with submitting and executing federal grants, filling the span of C awards, R awards, U awards, and SBIR/STTR awards.  We can turn your innovative ideas into stunning visuals and evidence driven methodology. Our services include
