We were delighted to welcome back two NSIV graduates for November’s InnoVentures U program, “Life Beyond NSIV.” Joel Berniac of Akrivis Technologies and Scott Sneddon of Sharp Edge Labs are shining examples of entrepreneurs who have made a successful transition from the NSIV incubator to their new roles as company spokesmen. Special thanks to NSIV Chairman Harry McCoy for moderating this panel discussion.
Congratulations to cleantech member Founder & CEO William Bardosh and his company TerraVerdae BioWorks, who has been chosen to participate in the Young Entrepreneurs Initiative (Yei) Program.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Georgia Mitsi discuss the following: Sometimes companies are started due to a personal crisis or fundamental underlying capability. What promoted the formation of Apptomics? What kinds of patients can benefit from Apptomics technology? How do the tools that Apptomics is developing help patients with chronic diseases better manage their care? Are these tools just for patients? What is your vision for the company and how it can help patients?

CrowdComfort and New England Hydropower Company were two of twelve companies chosen to present at the White House for a “Datapalooza” event on Wednesday, May 28, 2014. Sponsored by the White House, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the General Services Administration, the 2014 Energy Datapalooza recognizes private-sector innovators that are harnessing the power of data to build the clean energy economy. Martha Farmer, CEO of North Shore InnoVentures (NSIV), was pleased that the organization had such a strong presence at the event: “The fact that one-sixth of the speakers were NSIV members reflects our continuing efforts to attract innovative startups that are poised for success.”
We are delighted and honored to announce that Martha Farmer received an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Endicott College on Saturday, May 24. True to form, Martha broadens the context of this degree to include NSIV’s members, graduates, and affiliates for creating a vibrant and rich entrepreneurial community that embodies the mission of NSIV.
