“We had a great idea, but were in the valley of death for funding. We spent an enormous amount of time and effort trying to navigate the SBIR program to get funding for our business. That effort translated into a Phase I SBIR with the DoD , followed by Phase II and Phase III contract awards.  It is unlikely that Response Technologies would be in the strong position we are today if not for the great fortune of being awarded our first SBIR.” -- Ed Bard,  President Response Technologies
