2021 Year in Review – Technology


(Featured above: orthobrain founder Dr. Dan German presents at our third-annual Startup Showcase.)

It was a very busy year for our technology startup programs. Our team worked to expand connections for founders, continue mentorship and create strong bonds for our entrepreneurs. Many of our clients are still navigating restrictions created by the pandemic, but several saw success last year with hard work and determination.

On September 30, we hosted our third-annual Startup Showcase, which featured our most promising startups from our six entrepreneurial programs. The event brought together the entrepreneurial community for a day full of speakers, workshops, presentations and networking. We can’t wait to make 2022’s showcase an even bigger success!

Technology Incubator

The Technology Incubator is our signature program for growing startups developing a proprietary technology product or service that needs space, support, and access to experts and mentors. In 2021, we welcomed eight new clients to our incubator and currently have 33 clients to date.

Our Software Accelerator is a minimum three-month program for startups in any industry developing a software product. Last year, we helped six clients with their marketing and growth strategy while also providing access to experienced advisors and mentors.  The goal is to guide these startups towards revenue and investment readiness.

There were some fun highlights for new and old clients. RustBit Studio is currently building a cooperative game called The Grip of Madness which is now available to add to your Steam wishlist, an online gaming platform. TonDone, a client since 2020, also exhibited at the CES 2022 conference and was featured in our startup showcase.
