Pro-Change is a proud recipient of multiple SBIR grants and has received a Tibbets Award recognizing our achievements in this area. With both public and private funding, we have developed a suite of behavior change products in the areas of health and disease prevention.
We are seeking partner companies to help us market and distribute these programs. Rather than marketing our programs directly, we align ourselves with leaders in various market segments who distribute our evidence-based, tailored behavior change solutions. Often the joint effort to bring maximally effective, population-based programs to large audiences involves a licensing agreement for a partner to provide our LifeStyle Management Programs for a specified number of eligible users. All programs can be branded provided that the Pro-Change copyright is maintained. Small increases in the licensing fee occur as the audience expands beyond the negotiated initial size. Standard annual upgrades to the suite are included at no charge. As new programs are added, the licensing fee increases for the customers who choose to distribute them. We do not have and exclusive relationship with any partners and are not precluded from partnering with new organizations.
Pro-Change also accepts funding for research and development of new programs in areas of interest to our partners. In other instances, we create opportunities by inviting partners to act as commercialization partners or subcontractors for our Small Business Innovative Research proposals.
Senior staff at Pro-Change can also provide consultation on a variety of topics, including how to include behavior change messages in marketing campaigns or communications.
