March 28, 2016
A recent story by Barrie Barber of Dayton Daily News, examines Wright Brothers Institute’s (WBI) work with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and SP Global to foster tech-startups via Tec^Edge Ventures (TEV). TEV is a not-for-profit organization formed to foster projects/technologies that have the potential to be the foundation of new technology based businesses.
CoreSyte, a Virginia-based start-up served as a early pilot of the program. They have recently partnered with Gatorade to market a bandage-sized sensor to athletes and the the sports science community. This new technology was derived from AFRL research in partnership with The University of Cincinnati.
WBI and Tec^Edge Ventures are looking for new technologies/opportunities to develop other successful start-ups like CoreSyte. Specifically, they hope to “tackle issues in precision agriculture, energy, human performance enhancement and environmental monitoring.”
