SOME ACCOLADES FROM OUR CLIENTS
“I have submitted SBIR applications before but was never sure I understood what the solicitations wanted. Fred changed what had been an opaque, confusing process into a clear and rational one. I am much more confident in my submission.”
James Matson, MD, PresidentImmunocept, LLCDallas, Texas
Mark Pryor, PresidentVorticy, Inc.San Diego, California
“Fred is the best asset any company can have when writing an SBIR/STTR proposal. He is very experienced and knowledgeable and helps formulate a strategy that maximizes your chances of winning. I have worked with Fred on two proposals and on both, he was instrumental in helping us submit a solid proposal. Thanks Fred.”
“Thanks to your excellent coaching, the proposal was a real winner and has become the gold standard in our organization.”
Joe Sims, General ManagerStone Engineering DivisionAnalytical Services, Inc.Huntsville, Alabama
"The SBIR coach has been one of the foundations to our success in winning SBIR proposals. We have raised nearly $6M in SBIR funding to date and sleep very well at night knowing that our innovations can be clearly communicated to the reviewers at NIH."
Will Rosellini, CEOMicroTransponder, Inc.Dallas, Texas
"I've spent an entire career navigating the nightmarish NIH bureaucracy, mostly successfully. This time, though, with your coaching, the process was simple and smooth. Thanks, Fred. I look forward to getting funded on Phase I and working with you on Phase II."
Dr. Margaret Weis, PresidentLeading Edge PharmaceuticalsAmarillo, Texas
"Fred was absolutely instrumental in guiding us and walking us through the SBIR process. We were struggling and spinning our wheels until we engaged with him. Without his expertise, we would never have been able to submit a strong proposal to NSF. We look forward to doing business with the SBIR Coach again."
Shehrzad Qureshi, PresidentMedallion Solutions, LLCPalo Alto, California
"We approached Fred Patterson as an SBIR-novice, having never before submitted to NIH. Fred is a real pro. He completely understands the SBIR submission process and, even better, he understands the thinking behind SBIRs along with that of the reviewers who score them. Because of Fred I am confident and proud of the proposal we submitted."
Dominique Simon-Levine, PresidentSimon Levine & CompanyNorthampton, Massachusetts
“In the past we have co-authored grants, engaged consultants, and authored proposals on our own. This proposal was the smoothest and the best to-date. Your expertise was comforting and your conscientiousness was contagious. Thank you. Let’s win this Phase I and start work on a Phase II.”Mark Pydynowski, PresidentSOMARK Innovations, Inc.San Diego, California
"I credit our success to Fred Patterson's help and to his expert navigation of our SBIR Phase II proposal re-submission to the NIH. He is ethical, intuitive, responsive, highly intelligent and motivated. He is, in addition, an ardent advocate of the SBIR program and keeps us informed and involved."
Yasmin Wadia, M.D., CEOLaser Tissue Welding, Inc.Humble, Texas
"I want you to know that without your extraordinary skill and knowledge, I would never have gotten off first base. You personify the word "coach" in that you bring out the very best in all those that you meet. You will definitely be central to my team on all future work. You know how to pull all the loose ends together, and then put the finishing touches on wordsmithing that clinches the deal. Many thanks for all you have done and for all that you will do for me in the future."James P. Von Wolske, PresidentSuper Surface DrivesAustin, Texas
"Fred is the ideal “partner” to help with your SBIR grant. Our expertise was in technology, and we needed a lot of help with Phase I budget preparation and grant submission. If you have applied for a grant, you know each government agency is different and that there are a multitude of administrative issues that can prevent a proposal from ever being read. You can’t afford not to have an expert to help with strategic planning, financial analysis, budget and proposal preparation, and project submittal. Fred was our choice and a good one, and we plan to use his services with future SBIR Phase II and III grants."
"Fred Patterson was of significant help to me in breaking some online and offline bureaucratic problems associated with my Phase I SBIR grant. He was able to collect the final payment of my Phase I SBIR grant. He was also able to finalize my grant closeout. It was easy to work with Fred."
Philip F. Anthony, MD, President VertiGONE, Inc.Fort Worth, Texas
"Fred brings tremendous expertise to the SBIR process. Beyond his contracted service, Fred will go out of his way to provide his clients with any additional help they may need. I would highly recommend Fred with no reservations."
Simon Shewmaker, CFOPinellas ScientificLargo, Florida
"Fred's guidance led to successful selection of award for our proposal. He was an invaluable resource for balancing the content, ensuring the format, and properly setting the budget. Moreover, Fred went above and beyond the call of duty with accommodating odd hours in our times of need."
Benjamin Ashpole, CEOBashpole Inc.Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
“Thank you for your excellent work and great attitiude. It would not have happened without you."
“Fred was extraordinarily helpful in helping us think through our [NIH] project and to define its parameters in ways which he thought would be most likely to win us an award. Further, we all agree that, without Fred's guidance, counsel and ability to calm a number of very nervous people, we would not have been able to submit the Application in a timely way in order to meet the December 1 deadline.”
Carl W. Trautvetter, PresidentAeronavale EngineeringSan Diego, California
