Two OU INC clients take top honors in innovation contest
Two OU INC clients recently claimed first-place finishes and won $25,000 each in North America's largest business plan competition. At the The Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition, AutoBike won in the Next Generation Manufacturing category and CureLauncher took first place in the Life Sciences category.
The competition is an international business event designed to highlight Michigan as a robust and vibrant venue for innovation and business opportunity. Individuals and organizations with the best and brightest new business concepts competed to attract local and national investment capital to help foster their business.
AutoBike is a new venture that has created technology that monitors a bicycle's operating environment and adjusts the gear so that the user can simply hop on and enjoy the ride. The group has leveraged individual experience in research and development, product development, project management and financial management to bring their product from its conceptual beginnings all the way to production design. Autobike is currently discussing partnership opportunities with four bicycle manufacturers.
CureLauncher solves the clinical trial enrollment problem my using a patent-pending, technology-enabled process that translates enrolling trial information to improve patient understanding, matches patients to enrolling trials and contacts trial sites on behalf of patients. The organization has five-year exclusive contracts with many leading support communities and service agreements with trial sites and sponsors.
