Since the last set of portfolio news in January, VentureSouth investment companies have achieved recognition in many areas. In addition to Baebies' FDA approval, here are other examples:
Zipit Wireless: named in Gartner's Market Guide for Clinical Communication & Collaboration report.
Brightfield: profiled by UNC TV as part of their program about Asheville's Collider.
Several others added to their already impressive teams:
Kwipped: hired a CTO, Wellington Souza (and continued receiving positive press in trade magazines like For Construction Pros and Lab Manager, and local newspapers).
Avadim: hired a new chief medical officer, Dr Joseph Renzulli, and their newest board member, Humberto Antunes, won a Lifetime Achievement Award at the South Beach Symposium.
Others still announced sales growth and other partnerships, like:
Vendor Registry: is now being used by Myrtle Beach's procurement division.
TipHive: agreed a new partnership with a large Papa Johns franchisor, to help information sharing within the franchise network, and was featured in the MMM SE Tech Podcast series - to which you should subscribe.
And the final award of the night goes to Emrgy, voted the best startup in Georgia (1-10 employees) by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
