WKI – wendykennedy.com inc. is pleased to recognize the WKI Certified sites that are part of this year’s SBA’s FAST grant award recipients.  These organizations include the University of Delaware, First Flight Venture Center in North Carolina, and the Nebraska Business Development Center. We congratulate these award winners and look forward to supporting their work to help innovators turn their ideas into commercial opportunities.

The WKI Program has a long history of success in helping innovators to secure SBIR/STTR Phase I and II awards.  WKI Certified organizations across the country have been helping innovators prepare successful proposal applications for more than 12 years.  Wendy Kennedy, Founder and President of WKI said, “WKI is honored to include some of the nation’s top entrepreneurial advisors as WKI Certified Coaches.  It is their expertise and commitment that jumpstart the WKI design thinking frameworks for innovators.  We are excited to see more SBIR/STTR applicants have the opportunity to benefit from our program through their expertise.” 

Lou Dinetta, Manager, Technology Business Development at the University of Delaware SBDC said, “The Delaware SBDC’s iDEa Lab will launch its first cohort of the season funded by the Federal and State Technology (FAST) Partnership Program.  Utilizing the WKI Methodology, this program is well suited to assisting in the development of competitive SBIR/STTR proposals due to its focus on combining the business and technical aspects of the innovation into a practicable overview of the product application.” More information about the Delaware SBDC FAST Award is available here.
