The Entrepreneurs Center, headquartered in Dayton, Ohio has utilized the WKI methodology as a foundational element of our Small Business Innovative Research Technology Acceleration Project (SBIR TAP) since its inception in 2017. In the 2017-2022 period, more than 350 companies have gone through SBIR TAP. Following the program, those companies have been awarded more than $1.5B in follow-on federal research contracts and have generated more than $1.3B in third party venture capital investments. The SBIR TAP program is intended to unlock the business opportunities associated with early-stage technologies and WKI is a critical element in that effort.”
