An endorsement from a Large Aerospace Manufacturer: Yield Improvement in MEMS Production. "SmallTech Consulting was a great temporary addition to our internal yield improvement team. They quickly came up to speed on the issue at hand and provided multiple solutions, including several that were quite unique and innovative. Additionally, they were proactive and great to work with! We will certainly use them to supplement our efforts in the future."

From a Startup Entrepreneur CEO in Optics and Displays: Assessment and Development of IP and Business Strategies. "My company has worked with SmallTech on projects across several disciplines including MEMS, displays, optics, and IP. We have found SmallTech to be a trusted advisor to and integral extension of our company. SmallTech's core team represents a unique cross-section across many functional areas and sectors of high-tech and is truly outstanding. I highly recommend SmallTech's team for any company seeking consulting services and technical expertise in the micro and nano-scale technology spaces, and beyond."

From Anthony Natale, M.D./ Prism VentureWorks: Technical Due Diligence. "Smalltech Consulting performed technical diligence for us on a biomedical MEMS opportunity. Leslie and the team were fantastic to work with. They truly are domain experts and brought valuable insight and a wealth of relevant experience. They understood our needs as investors and gave us exactly what we needed, while sticking to a tight timeline. They were able to consolidate work on a number of different highly specific technical areas and present it all in one coherent package. I highly recommend them and would welcome the opportunity to use their services again when presented with the need for technical expertise in the MEMS space."

From Jacob Bindler/ COO MET Tech, Inc.: Technical Analysis and Market Research. "If not for the analysis and market research undertaken by Dr. Field, MET Tech would not have been funded. Dr. Field helped not only in dealing with purely technical issues, but also in market positioning of our products and assessment of the competitive landscape. She has very widespread contacts in the industry, and we are looking forward to working with her in the near future."

From a Multinational Corporation: Due Diligence for Investment in the Nanotechnology Space. This Company, pleased with SmallTech's comprehensive Due Diligence work, didn't authorize a website quote (confidentiality concerns), but did authorize their Manager with whom SmallTech worked on the project to serve as a delighted referral for future clients upon request.
