ATDC To Graduate Six Companies At Annual Entrepreneurs Showcase


VentureLab Will Also Recognize Georgia Tech Startups

Atlanta (April 2008) —On May 15, Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) will host one of the premier technology events of the Southeast, its Annual Entrepreneurs Showcase. Building on the launch of its highly successful blog, PeachSeedz, this year’s event theme is “Seeds for Success.” The event is expected to attract 500 entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders from across the Southeast.

“Being part of ATDC increases the probability of startup success,” said Charles Ross, acting general manager of ATDC. “We are extremely proud of this year’s graduating companies and what they’ve achieved. This group is very representative of the success our member companies have enjoyed and the quality entrepreneurs and teams that our center continues to attract and assist.”

Six companies will graduate from ATDC’s incubator program this year. The 2008 graduating companies are:

- Emcien, a demand-driven product management solution that determines an optimized product mix by recommending the fastest-moving, highest margin product configurations based on customer buying patterns;

- LCGI, a developer of Web applications that allow data collection via the Web, telephony and mobile devices;

- Neurotic Media, the leading media distribution platform and retail store solution for online and mobile content downloads through private-labeled stores;

- Oversight, a business that detects corporate fraud, misuse and errors through continuous monitoring of financial transactions;

- Terratial Technologies, a company focused on actualizing the potential of the mobile phone experience; and

- Vendormate, a provider of business-credentialing and compliance-monitoring solutions that help companies better manage the composition and risk of their supplier base.

“Being part of the ATDC has been an invaluable experience for me and our company,” said Andy Monin, CEO of Vendormate. “Any entrepreneur looking for an advantage in launching their technology startup should take a long look at what ATDC has to offer.”

In addition to the ATDC companies, Georgia Tech VentureLab – which helps form startup companies from Georgia Tech intellectual property—will graduate the following companies from its program. Three of them – Pramana, Qualtré and Suniva – have already been accepted as member companies of the ATDC.

- Pramana, which is developing an easy-to-deploy solution to help secure the Internet for meaningful human scale interactions;

- Qualtré, a developer of the next generation of high-performance, low-cost motion sensing technology, primarily for the consumer electronics market;

- Suniva, a company dedicated to the development, manufacture and marketing of high-value, high-efficiency silicon photovoltaic cells for clean, earth-friendly power generation;

- Verco Materials, which creates and manufactures dense, complex-shaped boron carbide for armor and wear applications; and

- Zenda Technologies, a company that delivers a novel, portable, immersive platform for rapid neuropsychological testing, allowing accurate diagnosis of concussion and early Alzheimer’s disease.

"The five companies graduating from VentureLab this year demonstrate the breadth of technology being developed at Georgia Tech,” said Stephen Fleming, Georgia Tech’s chief commercialization officer. “From photovoltaic cells and body armor to neurological testing, Internet security and motion sensing, we have a lot to offer the technology community in Georgia.”
