Funding Research, Grant Proposal Writing, and Business Development

I am a very senior professional with a diverse background that is probably unusual for this site. I am on Upwork because I am semi-retired and I enjoy helping people with their projects and giving general business support and advice. My experience includes being a university professor, a small tech business owner, a senior advisor in the U.S. government, and a business consultant focused on startup strategy, research fundraising, and Federal and state resources. You can learn more about my background from my LinkedIn profile, just search for James Kadtke Ph.D. Here are some of the skills I bring to the table: -- Superb research skills (including scientific) for a wide range of subject areas. I can research a topic, synthesize the material, and write concise summaries or more elaborate documents -- Excellent writing skills: I have over 80 peer-reviewed publications, and have contributed to countless other reports for the government, businesses, think tanks, and popular media. You can review some of my work at Researchgate under the profile James Kadtke or simply Google search my name. -- Extensive expertise in running and growing a business and finding funding and other resources; I often consult for startups on strategy -- Extensive experience in government and politics, and how to engage with agencies and leadership, so I can craft or review written materials for sensitivity and relevance -- Superb computer and social media skills -- I have been an independent consultant or contractor for nearly 30 years so I am quite comfortable performing on contracts and I strive hard to deliver the best products within time and cost requirements I think you will find that my hourly rate published here is well below most consultants with comparable skills. I am also always willing to negotiate costs to fit within a client's budget.
