Watershed Materials Completes Phase 1 of the National Science Foundation SBIR Grant

Please congratulate Jose Munoz, Joe Dahmen, Taj Easton, and Dan Alvarado for their one year of hard and productive work in validating the assumption that durable masonry products can be made without cement.

Today we submitted the final report to the National Science Foundation as a part of our NSF SBIR phase 1 research grant.

More about the SBIR funding program and the National Science Foundation:

“NSF SBIR/STTR programs incentivize and enable startups and small business to undertake R&D with high technical risk and high commercial reward.

There must be significant market opportunity and transformational technology with significant societal or commercial impact.

We give grants split into phases:

Phase I: $150k, 6 months 
Phase II: $750k, 2 years

plus over $500k in additional supplemental grants available.

At each phase we vet the technology, commercial potential and company following NSF's rigorous Merit Review process.”
