On January 26 I received a “non-responsive” email from the DOE, meaning that my project doesn’t fulfill what they were looking to fund. The primary reason given is the limited geographic area that my project addresses.
I’m good with that. The SBIR funding was a long shot, but one that I thought worth taking. I learned a lot in the process that will help me going forward.
I’m going to focus on the technology again for awhile, adding connectivity and diagnostic functionality to a package that looks great and works reliably. This, in preparation for field deployment in volunteer homes this summer.
I’m also making connections with the other entrepreneurs in the Albuquerque area, thanks to Dan Heron and ActivateNM.
Momentum is building!
