"Airlift has received an STTR Phase II grant. I'm really indebted to the help I received from NBDC (i.e. learning how to set up a business, registering it for STTR grants, market research, commercialization plan, writing workshops, etc.). Airlift couldn't have done this without NBDC's help." Dr. Steve Comfort, partner, Airlift Environmental LLC
