I knew that the problem was something beyond my ability to solve and would be useful to everyone else who makes clay prints. The help I received—it’s something I could not have gotten anywhere else.
Because of the assistance funded through NMSBA, SRI is now perfectly positioned to become a national leader in algae research.
NMSBA enabled me to tap into high-level resources and expertise. Our company has grown into a national outdoor lifestyle brand, and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s all panned out.
Testing solar thermal component durability would have been impossible without LANL’s polymer expertise.
The technical evaluation performed through NMSBA enabled us to successfully compete and win grants to begin manufacturing prototypes of our technology.
Without NMSBA’s assistance, I would be spinning my wheels. Sandia’s Bob Winters was the right person at the right time.
I recommend reaching out to NMSBA if you have a technical problem. The national laboratories have the resources small businesses simply do not have.
NMSBA and the national laboratories are the best way to go for small businesses, particularly for those that have complex technical problems. Without such support, many of these problems just don’t get fixed.
With the techical assistance provided by Sandia through NMSBA, we are now in a position of manufacturing the highest frequency bandwidth current sensors in the world.
For us, having NMSBA connect us with Los Alamos enabled us to obtain expertise we could not find anywhere else.
This work by Sandia was key in allowing me to project what the cost of energy is likely to be when we scale this up into a commercial scenario.
