Celebrate four months of accomplishment with the six startups of the Spring 2017 Commercialization Academy class at Mohawk Valley Community College's new campus in Rome, NY!

Griffiss Institute and Wasabi Ventures would like to invite you to join the six startups of the Spring 2017 Commercialization Academy class as they pitch a panel of judges and the audience on the companies they have built around Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI) technology. A judges' vote and a live audience vote will be held, with two cash prizes of $15,000 and $5,000, respectively, to be given to the winners of the two best pitches of the day.

That means each startup will have the opportunity to win much-needed seed money! 

The six startups are, ADK Ops, After Zero Technologies, E-Health Now, Indago Innovation, Intake, and Mentis Technologies. Over the last four months, these entrepreneurs have received an abundance of tools and resources, including a startup educational platform that has taught each of them the logistics of building a startup.

We'll also virtually welcome back Aerial Force and Qwik Supply from the 2016 Commercialization Academy class to provide updates on their companies. At last Fall's Demo Day, MakeIt3D won the Judges' Choice Award and Sensible Spreader Technologies won the Audience Choice Award.
