“I just wanted to thank you for all of your help on the DoD grant. It was taxing process, but I think it was a strong application. We put in as strong of an application as we could, and you were an integral part of that, so I just want to extend our gratitude.”

– Dr. Raymond Alvarez, CEO, Ichor Biologics

“I was one of several faculty at the University of Alaska Fairbanks that was participating in your seminars provided to help us develop SBIR proposals. I was very fortunate, and the USDA just called to let me know that I got my Phase I awarded starting in June.

I wanted to thank you for all your advice and expertise you provide in your seminars and through your book. I followed your advice to a T and USDA liked the proposal – developing a nutraceutical from AK blueberries to blunt inflammatory and oxidative stress in the CNS with the goal to alleviate cognitive deficits in aging and perhaps some chronic neurodegenerative diseases. I am excited and already worry about a Phase II proposal. I will for certain seek your advice in the future for guidance and my proposals.

Thank you and all the best.”

– Tom Kuhn, Ph.D., Faculty, University of Alaska Fairbanks

– David Myer, Contracts Manager, Integrated Laboratory Systems

“As an orthopaedic surgeon, I’ve faced some difficult tasks including making it through medical school and an arduous postgraduate training program. I’ve published bench and clinical research papers. I’ve served on a variety of public and private boards of directors, some of which were difficult and perplexing. None, however, was as confusing as applying for a NIH research grant. The language was “foreign” and several government websites had to be navigated. Different websites used different terminology to mean the same thing.

I’ve now applied three times. For the first I worked on the application for months and thought it was in on time. Later I learned that it had not even been accepted. The second time we used a consultant and did a little better but missed some chances to improve our application and never had a chance

Finally, we were guided to Eva Garland Consulting, LLC. Suddenly we had
understandable guidance and effective assistance. Their knowledge and experience were clear. Eva knew how to approach the process and improve our application to the point that we are cautiously optimistic that we will be successful this time around. I highly and unequivocally recommend Eva Garland Consulting, LLC. There is no question that I will wish to engage her for my next grant application.”

– James D. Hundley, MD, VP – Research, GO2, LLC

“Dr. Garland’s expert and insightful work on our proposals brought us unprecedented success with our grant applications. In her hands they became compelling statements of our work that commanded recognition by the study sections. She is also on top of peripheral but important aspects of the funding process. We consider her an essential partner in our strategy for obtaining non-dilutive funding from a variety of sources including the NIH.”

– Cuthbert Simpkins MD, President and Chief Scientific Officer, Vivacelle Bio, Inc.

“The team operates beyond all expectations. They are always available to help and always make you feel like you are their most important client, regardless of size (how big or small) of the emerging SBIR company. The team is friendly and adept, they continue to impress us with every engagement. Notably, not only do they ensure high quality and accurate work, they make sure their clients understand the interworking and requirements of the federal grant management programs.”

– Anthony L. Dellinger, Ph.D., President of Kepley BioSystems, Inc.

“Just wanted to say thank you for taking your time to arrange these sessions with us and provide us with your expertise and experience. I feel a lot more confident to have a foundation to attempt to write a competitive SBIR. I will certainly contact you with respect to my SBIR proposal development between now and the submission deadline. Thank you so much.”

– Anindya Chanda, Ph.D. Founder and CEO, Mycologics LLC

“I had a really great experience from the start. I was very impressed with Connie! I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to help manage this grant process with me. She was very responsive, professional, thorough and knowledgeable. She worked very hard for me. I couldn’t have asked for a better fit. I’m so excited and happy with what we submitted and the team we formed. Whatever the result I have no regrets and I feel lucky that I had the opportunity to try. I hope if things do work out and we get funded that we can continue to work together further! I feel like Connie is part of my company now. I’m so grateful for her knowledge and insight.”

– Amy Young, Founder, Jigsawdio

“I really enjoyed working with Connie Vance. She was knowledgeable, skilled and had a deep understanding of how to represent my project to the NIA.”

– Steven M. Schorr, CEO, Extended Longevity

“My EGC consultants participate heavily in the scientific writing rather than just managing submissions for completeness. I typically send a set of relevant literature, a synopsis of literature, and Aims directives with the literature experiments that I’d like to model the aims on. They create the drafts which is immensely time-saving. Staff continuity has been excellent allowing the consultants to become very familiar with the relevant background science. EGC consultants are highly responsive and communicative and 100% reliable for meeting deadlines. They are knowledgeable about the best practices to make grants most attractive to reviewers.”

– Jeremy Elser, Ph.D. CEO, Ship of Theseus

“This is my second time using Eva Garland for my federal grant submission and I am SO happy I came back! The first time was great and my consultants were full of resources, however my most recent work with Brandon was incredible and rewarding. Not only did he provide me with resources, he kept me updated on the ever-changing requirements of my federal grant and went above and beyond to ensure that we met all criteria before submission. I loved that he suggested weekly progress meetings, as that kept me on track and motivated to keep working, on an otherwise daunting application. I also met with Tiger a time or two and I can honestly say, both gave me great confidence in my project and myself to complete and submit my grant! I am so thankful for Brandon and his willingness to help support me through this process. I would highly recommend Eva Garland consultants again!!”

– Alli Truttmann, CEO, Wicked Sheets

“Dr. Lu was everything we could have hoped for and more during our first AFWERX submission. She responded rapidly to every question we asked, provided thoughtful and thorough feedback, and she knows her stuff! We are so glad that we hired EGC as an hourly consultant. Worth every penny.”

– Blake Richardson, Co-founder & CEO, EaseAlert

“The knowledgeable, friendly and professional team that we worked with to set up our 

strategic plan turned the chaos of federal grants into a clear roadmap.”

– Wendy Morgan, CEO, Shift Bias

“The Gap analysis with follow up was extremely valuable – obtaining the policy and procedures helped move us in the right direction.”

– Devin Wiley, Ph.D. Head of Research & Development, Circumvent Pharmaceuticals
