Entities concentrate on a myriad of priorities day in and day out, often to the point where everyone's attention is on the here and now, leaving little time to consider how the pursuit of related activities or leveraging new opportunities would result in growth.

There are many resources in this region, but locating the appropriate resources at just the right moment can take a lot of time!  NanoVox has identified and vetted resources that could be complementary to what your organization is seeking, particularly if you're seeking new opportunities.

EXAMPLES OF NEEDS

If you're seeking new opportunities, how do you determine what (and where) those might be?

For instance…

  • If an organization has determined an interest in funded contracts or grants with national or regional departments, do they know how to seek those opportunities?
  • If a company possesses a unique capability --- or is seeking a unique capability --- do they need a way to identify new outlets or capabilities?

Regardless of needs, NanoVox is committed to save you time and money while providing assistance to identify opportunities that meet your needs.

EXAMPLE PROCESS OF HOW NANOVOX HELPED A BUSINESS IN THE REGION:

NanoVox was approached by a company specializing in filtration because it needed to accomplish some testing it was unable to perform in-house.  NanoVox researched multiple potential partners and provided the company with options for its consideration.

Depending upon the original need or opportunity sought, the results NanoVox is able to provide will also vary.
