The COVID-19 pandemic only really took hold globally in the following year of 2020, when businesses bore the brunt of a natural course of action which saw many operations halted. In some cases things had to come to a complete standstill, but with regards to your business, how would you go about turning things around beyond the pandemic?
Research & Development Funding
Research and Development Funding is a common term for a company that seeks financial help from the federal government.

The most obvious representation of these B2B alignments is most evident through some online video ads you see, or even on television, where two distinctive brands make a clear appearance.
