For Government Entities

Measure and report on engagement with small businesses using the Fluency Score

Mobilize the Fluency Score to connect objectives, funding, support and performance within a framework that allows for coherent reporting and ongoing optimization of ROI. This tool allows your organization to quantify and track small business commercialization potential with effective, standardized data relevant to decision makers. 

Why is this standardized data so imperative? The Fluency Score’s information and analysis mitigates the necessary risk of innovation and offers visibility on the impact of government-funded initiatives on startups receiving contracts, grants, and other investment.
