CEO of Compass Technology Group LLC Becky Schultz joins host Jason Kanigan on the Cold Star Project, and our topic of discussion is commercialization of products developed through SBIR/STTR grant funding.

Becky Schultz on SBIR/STTR Funding

Jason asks Becky to tell us about her background and its relevance to SBIR/STTR awards:

  •  What was your initial intention in getting grant money: to develop tech/IP, or move towards commercializing a product? Why?
  • Share your experience with the grant awards process…quirks, takeaways, frustrations
  • What problem were you solving and how did you know the market would be interested in buying?
  • Your focus on commercialization ⏤ success stories, struggles (supply chain, scaling manufacturing processes?)
  • What do you recommend for those seeking grant funding, in terms of purpose/focus/approach/expectation.
