It's true, we have moved to Indianapolis, IN and are located at the 16 Tech Innovation District ! We are excited for the opportunity to expand our R&D and business development resources. We look forward to engaging with the Indiana startup community and collaborating along side industry/institutional partners in the life science and agriculture sectors. More genetic detection technology development news to come, but first we need to show our appreciation!
Thank you Mitch Frazier of AgriNovus who has been our primary advocate (with a strong credit to Brad Fruth for the introduction). Mitch and Brad within a matter of 3 weeks assembled us a small army across multiple organizations. Our "Indiana" team helped us access the resources we needed to initiate the next phase of our companies research and commercialization plan. Special thanks needs to be given to that small army which includes:
Indiana Economic Development Corporation: Jessica Simmons-Tower
Purdue University & Purdue Foundry: Wade Lange, Dan Dawes, Alexandria Hancock, Ben Forsythe, Mike Poderycki, and Natasha Nikolaidis
Indiana Small Business Development Center (Indiana SBDC): Dan Drexler
Indiana Biosciences Research Institute: Natalie Stull
BioCrossroads: Brian Stemme
This group including others ability to engage across organizations and institutions definitely convinced us the move to Indiana was the right fit. Indiana's motto is "A State that Works!" We are now believers.
Last, but certainly not least...Thank you to Hank Norem for hosting us at Maple Ventures. Maple Ventures in West Des Moines, IA was our home for two years and we are so thankful for their support. The community Hank has fostered there is truly one of a kind, if you are an #entrepreneur in Iowa you need to look them up! We will definitely miss our neighbors! Ramco Innovations, MākuSafe, Agri Drain Corporation.
Thank you to those who believe in our technology and mission. We are excited to keep you up to date on the next phase. #research #innovation #technology #community
