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. "
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."
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."
John Krumme / CEO , Sapphire Medical LLC. /Partner , The Beta Group: MEMS Survey, Invention, Prototyping
"In the early stages of developing a micro-miniature drug delivery system I hired Leslie Field to research the MEMS literature for prior art and interesting ideas. This task was done promptly and thoroughly demonstrating technical depth and breadth, but more importantly it was done with a creative flare and perspective for the overall project goals. As the project progressed, Leslie moved on to the task of inventing micro-valve devices to be used in conjunction with drug delivery systems. Her production here was also top notch, resulting in patent applications on several inventions. Follow-up included vendor search and management for prototype building. Her contacts in industry and academic contacts in specialty fields also proved valuable.
She is a delight to work with because of her enthusiasm and quick uptake of concepts and technology. A thorough knowledge of IP protocol and ability to communicate with both technical and management types makes it a pleasure to do business with her.
I feel very confident in using her on a broad range of tasks as noted and highly recommend her.”
