Technical and Business Assistance - Needs Assessment

The TABA Needs Assessment Report provides a third party, unbiased assessment of your progress in 10 technical and business areas that are critical to success in the competitive healthcare marketplace:

  • Target Market Attractiveness (Need/Size)
  • Ability to Address Market Need
  • Regulatory Path
  • Business Model Profitability
  • Competition and Intellectual Property
  • Sales and Marketing Strategy
  • Management Team
  • Strategic Partners
  • Funding Status/Financial Plan
  • Potential Exit Plan

The report will also suggest the highest priority steps you can take to improve the commercial potential of your product or service. There is no cost for this report and the time commitment for participation is minimal - selected companies are required to participate in a small number of information gathering interviews with Vikriti’s team of commercialization experts and a feedback session. Needs Assessment Reports will be completed in 2-3 months.

Eligibility: Applicants must have had an active NIH SBIR or STTR Phase I or Phase I Fast-Track award (grant or contract) within the past two years. For companies with multiple awards, only one project will be considered for the program. Small businesses that have received TABA funding within their Phase I award are not eligible to participate.

Deadline: The Needs Assessment Program will be open throughout the year. Requests will be reviewed on a monthly basis with notification of status within 60 days of submission.
