Precision NanoSystems has advanced to the final round of top 10 companies in the British Columbia Innovation Council (BCIC) New Ventures Competition. The New Ventures program is one of North America’s largest emerging technology business plan competitions, with over 175 entrants in 2011 competing over four rounds to win cash prizes.
James Taylor, Ph.D., CEO of Precision NanoSystems said, “This is an exciting accomplishment for Precision. Precision started operations less than 10 months ago and has gained significant momentum since inception. Being able to compete with some of British Columbia’s most exciting emerging technology businesses this early in our existence speaks highly of the impact for our technology to transform healthcare.”
A total of $375,000 in prizes will be announced at the BCIC-New Ventures Awards on September 22, 2011 in Vancouver.
