Grow's national-caliber trainers offer a variety of online and in-person workshops.
Grow experts provide training that addresses a broad range of important topics for small firms, including business strategies, operational issues, and the all-important area of raising working capital. We specialize in providing training and workshops related to the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs.
Welcome to the National SBIR Conference in Washington, D.C. --
Grow's training activities are led by Mark Henry. As a manager/principal with several SBIR-funded firms and as a national consultant, Mark has been involved in the planning, preparation, and production of some 1,800 SBIR and STTR proposals, and he is known around the country as the "Vince Lombardi" of the SBIR Program.
Mark has been active throughout his 30-year career in national outreach, training, and advocacy for small, high-tech businesses. He has been asked to give SBIR presentations at more than 50 national and regional SBIR meetings since 1984, and he has conducted SBIR seminars and workshops in more than 30 states over the past 26 years. He now offers a range of interactive online training courses, along with the in-person workshops he provides.
Past comments from people who have received SBIR/STTR training from Mark:
"Our win rate went from 0 for 17 to 60% success on dozens of proposals after Mark's training!"
"Mark Henry really IS the Vince Lombardi of the SBIR Program."
"Mark Henry is extremely knowledgeable about the SBIR program and knows how to get the message across. He tells it like it is."
