My companies have successfully won a number of grants over the years. In addition, I have worked as a consultant for other companies since 2000. Since that time, I have helped one company win a Phase I SBIR grant from the NSF and another company win both a Phase I and Phase II SBIR grant from the Department of Defense. This is in addition to grants won by my own companies. My company Trefoil Corporation won a Phase I and Phase II grant from the NIH, and spent over $300,000 supporting research at the University of Maine.
As a member of the Faculty Five we managed to significantly increase state funding for research. The University has benefited greatly from our efforts.
