Develop a Commercialization Plan
Work with a dedicated market expert to create a ComPlan™ – the ‘Commercialization Plan’ is designed to outline how your early-stage invention will move from a research idea to a commercially-viable product in the marketplace.
A well-defined ‘Commercialization Plan’ is required to apply for a Phase II SBIR R&D grant.
Larta‘s ComPlan™ is a market-tested commercialization plan that demonstrates market and management competence, instills confidence, sets expectations and increases your chances of success. The ComPlan™ conveys that you as an entrepreneur/founder are in a position to pursue commercial applications of your R&D.
Larta’s subject matter expert (Principal Advisor) will work iteratively with the you to develop, test, and validate the ComPlan™, covering market opportunity, company and team, competition and IP, and finance and revenue model.
