The Greenwoods have taught SBIR/STTR workshops in 48 states plus Puerto Rico and Washington D.C., offering training through local and regional economic development groups, universities, Federal laboratories, SBDCs and MEPs. The Greenwoods also have taught at many of the National SBIR Conferences in the past decade, including recent national conferences in New Orleans, Portland and Washington DC.
