New Venture Competition
2016 New Venture Competition has closed its nomination process
Thank you to all of those who entered. We are currently reviewing the submissions and will announce the winners at the October 4 Indiana Life Sciences Summit.
1st Place- Phytoption
Phytoption transforms high value, insoluble ingredients into soluble solutions for food, supplement, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical uses. Their formulations effectively deliver poorly water-soluble actives, such as antioxidants and anti-cancer drugs, in cold water soluble formats.
2nd Place- Arrhythmotech
Arrhythmotech is leveraging a breakthrough in the detection and analysis of sympathetic nerve activity. They are developing a series of novel devices, algorithms, and services to enable skin-based sympathetic nerve activity measurement and analysis, simultaneous with electrocardiogram measurement, using the neuECG™ device.
3rd Place- Animated Dynamics
Animated Dynamics provides clinical laboratory services for personalized cancer therapy selection. AniDyn’s biodynamic imaging technology measures the efficacy of cancer drugs inside living 3D tissue and provides predictors, within 48 hours of a cancer biopsy, that indicate how a patient may respond to their prescribed therapy.
Auricyte is developing a first of its kind therapy for hearing loss. Their platform is a regenerative technology that guides human stem cells into functional hearing cells. The stem cell-derived hearing cells are structurally and functionally indistinguishable from human hearing cells and can be applied as a new regenerative therapy for hearing loss.
