The startup PrepToon – which uses interactive simulations to help teachers introduce Math concepts to K12 students, is looking to apply for an SBIR Phase 1 Grant that funds EdTech startups such as PrepToon to evaluate the scientific and technical merit of the concept.

One of main requirements for this is a proposal that should concentrate on Research/Research & Development (R/R&D) that will establish the feasibility of the technological approach, a prerequisite for further ED support in Phase II. Awards are for periods up to 6-months in amounts up to $150,000.

With USC’s faculty’s strong research background, we’re looking to partner with a faculty/researcher @ USC in applying for and working on this grant with us. The grant also funds the researcher’s work.

The solicitation is due Jan 21st and they are looking to start working on proposal fairly quickly. For more information, please contact Ruchira Modi at
