Christine Howard: Yeah, I do all the things. No, it’s E.B. Howard Consulting and we are a full service, non-dilutive, development and evaluation company. And that’s a lot to take in right there. So what we do three things, really, three services or products for our clients. We help them find funding, non-dilutive funding, meaning they’re not going to take equity out of their company or their program or their project to get that funding. The second thing we do is help them prepare for that funding. And that might mean proposal preparation or helping them with the documentation behind the scenes. And then the third thing is evaluation. So a lot of times when there are public dollars involved, the funder wants reporting. Did you do what you said you were going to do with the dollars? Did you meet your goals and objectives? If you didn’t, that’s OK. But we want evidence that you made strides towards those and that’s evaluation in a nutshell. So yeah, we find it apply for and measure it. Our target audience tends to be STEM based organizations, meaning they’re trying to solve social, environmental or just industrial problems that are going to benefit the community in some way, shape or form. And it could be Higher Ed, could be K through 12, could be a nonprofit organization, but a lot of our clients are startups that are doing things from maybe they’re working on cardiovascular technique, you know, stroke treatment. Sure, maybe it’s cancer treatment. Maybe it’s, you know, real time water contamination detections or maybe it’s something in the Department of Defense sphere that’s going to help with, you know, after, you know, there’s been a conflict, you know, helping with those type of, you know, infrastructure development type things. So all of it stem based in some way, shape or form, science, technology, engineering and math. But it’s all for the socially good in some way, shape or form.
