Thank you for replying. I guess it is expected that experiences differ.
In my experience very little can be accomplished in one person-week. Even if
you have very well developed project - it needs to be applied to a specific
topic, which takes a bit of research. But what if topic looks like a good match
to some private project? Don't you need a business plan or at least a case? Is
success of SBIR application simply a coincidence of commercial success and good
topic match? (02)
