NIH Offers Niche Assessment Program to HHS SBIR and STTR Phase I Awardees

NIH offers its Niche Assessment Program to SBIR and STTR Phase I Awardees (by grant or contract).

A third party, unbiased assessment of appropriate market niches for products/services that are being developed by HHS’s SBIR/STTR Phase I awardees will be performed by Foresight Science & Technology. Using its Technology Niche Analysis® (TNA®), Foresight will perform the due diligence on markets appropriate for each SBIR/STTR technology and develop an in-depth report for each SBIR/STTR awardee that addresses:

--needs and concerns of end-users
--competing technologies and competing products
--competitive advantage of the SBIR/STTR-developed technology
--market size and potential market share (may include national and/or global markets)
--barriers to market entry (may include, but is not limited to pricing, competition, government          
regulations, manufacturing challenges, capital requirements, etc.)
--market drivers
--status of market and industry trends
--potential customers, licensees, investors, or other commercialization partners
--price customers are likely to pay
