Is there a fee to submit?
There is no cost to submit for consideration or to access ESP services. Should you move forward, there may be costs associated with commercialization.

Do you provide funding?
In some cases, we provide small grants that can be applied to business assessment, beta testing, prototype engineering, patent searches and filing, FDA testing and other services that could help propel your business forward.
