You may be looking for a grant provider to continue your research; you’re ready to commercialize your research success; or, you need to expand your network and connect to the right advisors and financial resources.
We can help you find industry partners, capital networks and government programs to support scaling your research or products to have a greater impact.
Diane Harms of Harms & Co. has worked on both sides of the grant application process. Sometimes the path to success is just a matter of organizing your information in the way the granting officers have asked for it. Connecting what you have to offer with their requirements is one of our superpowers.
