Discover new markets and potential commercial opportunities for your technology through specialized market assessment research!

Join us for this special informational session to learn how Market Assessment research can help you gain a better understanding of the broader commercial potential of your technology or innovation by identifying specific applications and markets, and testing value proposition.

This market assessment process is ideal for Hawaii SBIR/STTR Phase 1 awardees who are preparing commercialization plans for Phase II proposals and/or preparing business plans to attract private investment.

Please note: this webinar is 9am – 11am.

Interested SBIR companies who engage in a Market Assessment project with HTDC will receive:

  • High-level landscaping exercise to identify potential applications and markets;
  • Testing of value proposition in a selected market with greatest perceived potential, and indicate which elements are validated, invalidated, or require further research;
  • Assessment of overall commercial viability; and
  • Recommendation of actions to pursue opportunities and address weaknesses.

Registration is required. Sign-up by Sunday, July 19. The webinar link (Zoom) will be included in the registration confirmation email, as well as in the event reminder email sent to all attendees the day before the webinar.
