Accelerate the creation of small business innovations


In support of the CITY LAB’s primary purpose, CITE Services will provide advisory services in an effort to assist in the commercialization of private, academic, and federally funded R&D to bridge the gap that spans the “valley of death” for large and small businesses. CITE Services is ideally suited to assist the Technology and Research Accelerating National Security and Future Economic Resiliency Act of 2013, which recommends the inclusion of business advisory services early in the R&D process.
