  14. 14. Lessons Learned/Caveats    Small Businesses and SBIR/STTR Program emphasize commercialization and marketing. Entrepreneurship can’t be taught. Identify a “service” you can provide the company that may lead to discovery of new product(s) or process(es) and/or opportunities to streamline current activities.  Effective communication is beyond essential.  Face-to-face meetings work wonders.
