Phase I Awardees - Request Your TABA Needs Assessment Report Today!

Recent Phase I SBIR or STTR awardees (grant, contract, or Fast-Track) of NIH, FDA, or CDC, can request a free Technical and Business Assistance (TABA) Needs Assessment Report developed by RTI Innovation Advisors. The report provides an assessment of your project’s progress in four technical and business areas: 

  • Market Needs/Competitive Awareness
  • Intellectual Property/Barriers to Entry 
  • Business Model Profitability 
  • Manufacturing, Regulatory, and/or Clinical Plan 

These reports are very valuable for early-stage companies and first-time entrepreneurs. They can be used to identify and prioritize your business needs as you continue to develop your product or service. Many companies use insights from these reports to clarify the focus of their request for TABA funding (up to $50,000) in their Phase II applications.

There is no cost for this report and your time commitment is minimal.
