BBCetc employs a group of highly qualified expert consultants with combined expertise that includes the 11 SBIR funding agencies.

“While we help companies secure SBIR / STTR funding, we consider our individualized approach to developing a solid proposal and marketing plan to be as important as the outcome of the funding itself,” said Becky aistrup, the other co-owner and managing partner. “Each company comes to us at a different stage of their development with unique challenges and different levels of proposal writing skills.
