Strategic Planning

The EGC team assists clients in developing a detailed strategy to incorporate non-dilutive funding into their overall product development plans.  Our process is highly customized to meet each client’s needs.  We consider both the R&D and business objectives of our clients, and provide them with a comprehensive plan that includes:

Identification and prioritization of non-dilutive funding opportunities to accelerate product development

Non-dilutive funding can provide critical capital to advance innovative technologies, but it can also become a distraction, and even detract from product development, if it is not carefully integrated within a company’s overall business objectives.  EGC helps clients create a plan to secure non-dilutive funding that will efficiently and effectively advance their business objectives.

Establishment of a schedule for proposal submissions

EGC’s Grant Specialists works with clients to establish an appropriate “pipeline” of proposal submissions to increase the likelihood that sufficient non-dilutive funds will be secured to meet clients’ product development requirements.

Recommendations of internal and external effort and resources required to support grant submissions

Internal and external resource requirements depend on multiple factors.  Some clients are well-positioned with their existing internal infrastructure to support grant submissions; other clients are better-served by outsourcing much of the work required to prepare a competitive proposal.  We work with clients to determine the most appropriate strategy for preparing successful proposals, based on their existing internal expertise, financial resources and business strategy.

Strategies to streamline and accelerate grant submissions and awards

The EGC team’s extensive experience working with funding agencies results in an “insider” knowledge of these agencies’ processes and procedures.  We typically save clients months of valuable time by helping them navigate through the agencies’ complex and nuanced submission processes.

An investor-ready presentation detailing the non-dilutive funding strategy

Companies developing innovative technologies are typically more attractive to investors when they include a strategy to incorporate non-dilutive funding into their overall product development plan.  Non-dilutive funding serves to de-risk equity funding, and the peer-review process required to obtain grants provides an external validation of the value of the technology.  We provide clients with presentation materials that detail their non-dilutive funding strategies, objectives, and timelines.
