I think everyone should be considering submitting SBIR grants right now. If successful, you can receive up to $2M in non-dilutive funding. I put together a complementary training for anyone who would like to understand how to put a non-dilutive funding program in place. I have raised nearly $30M in SBIR funding and have a course that helps you integrate your capital raise with non-dilutive funding. You can schedule a call to discuss with me or check out the program for free here.
