Prendismo Is Awarded National Science Foundation Phase IB SBIR Grant

The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded Prendismo $50,000 in supplemental funding for a Small Business Innovation Grant project entitled Entrepreneurship Education Using Interactive Media. Prendismo’s President, Kirsten Barker, is the Principal Investigator and will lead the project team.

As a leading developer of digital video content on business and leadership, Prendismo has pioneered new ways of sharing tacit knowledge among the stakeholders within organizations, particularly information-based small businesses or nascent startup companies. Prendismo has successfully used digital video clips to bring applied wisdom into the corporate environment in ways that educate and engage viewers. Using NSF funding this approach will be adapted to the entrepreneurial environment to enhance the skills of scientific and engineering students at both the graduate and undergraduate level.
