The National Science Foundation’s Phase I Commercialization Planning Program [CP2™] is offered twice a year, depending upon when Phase I awardees receive notice of award.
The National Science Foundation’s commitment to education and training is reflected in Dawnbreaker’s design of the CP2 program. The program’s overall goal is to help prepare companies for commercialization success. The method used to accomplish this assures that companies acquire new skills and information that they can generalize to other situations.
All Phase I SBIR and STTR recipients are eligible for commercialization assistance. NSF divides the group of eligible firms into two groups. This year half of the small businesses will be assigned to work with Dawnbreaker and the other half to LARTA. You will need to work with the vendor to which you are assigned and may also choose not to participate in the program.
Since 2001, Dawnbreaker has worked with over 2,180 NSF funded Phase 1 projects, assisting small businesses prepare for successful commercialization of their NSF funded technology.
