Ashok Mendiratta writes "STI ( is looking for help with business plan development for two of its spin-off companies: a Duke start-up – “an improved process for Biomolecular/Protein Preservation”, and a start-up by former Glaxo employees – “Biomarkers for diagnosing depression”. The companies had received SBIR Phase I grants and have demonstrated the proof-of-concept (the depression diagnosis company has also conducted prelim clinical studies). For applying for SBIR Phase II grants, we need to develop a strong commercialization plan which will include conducting market research, identifying targeted applications, and developing business models and business plans."
