About us

Testimonials

If not for the analysis and market research undertaken by Dr. Field, MET Tech would not have been funded. Dr. Field helped not only in dealing with purely technical issues, but also in market positioning of our products and assessment of the competitive landscape. She has very widespread contacts in the industry, and we are looking forward to working with her in the near future.

Jacob Bindler

COO MET Tech, Inc.: Technical Analysis and Market Research

SmallTech Consulting performed technical diligence for us on a biomedical MEMS opportunity. Leslie and the team were fantastic to work with. They truly are domain experts and brought valuable insight and a wealth of relevant experience. They understood our needs as investors and gave us exactly what we needed, while sticking to a tight timeline.

Prism VentureWorks (Technical due diligence)

SmallTech Consulting was a great temporary addition to our internal yield improvement team. They quickly came up to speed on the issue at hand and provided multiple solutions, including several that were quite unique and innovative. Additionally, they were proactive and great to work with! We will certainly use them to supplement our efforts in the future.

A large aerospace manufacturer

Dr. Leslie Field and her team at SmallTech were involved in our MEMS product development project from ideation through prototyping and were fundamental in each phase. ... Dr. Field's work during the concept and initial design phases of our project was particularly strong as she is impressively creative and, combined with her extensive experience and background in the field, she delivered a multitude of design options to meet our product specifications. She has a great working relationship with several foundries and worked directly with them to deliver timely prototypes.
