“The roadmap for a successful start-up venture is not always a straight and well-defined path. To this point, the New Jersey Tech Council has provided various vehicles throughout the year to network, meet peers, consultants and investors. For example, as a presenting company at the recent Venture Conference our focus was on pitching our business for a potential investor. As it turned out, the timing also coincided with the launch of our first product, GenVisc 850, which treats osteoarthritis knee pain. While we made several good contacts and referrals during the event, an individual approached us as a potential investor, and unexpectedly, as a customer as well. This connection enabled us to make introductions to a major orthopedic practice and we’re presently in discussions to win their business. A great outcome but not one we expected – we didn’t land the investment but we gained a customer. Just one example of our ability to pivot and take advantage of the opportunities presented by the Tech Council.”

“As a new member of NJTC, I found the presentation by John McCarthy of Forrester on “Software is the Brand” to be informative and helpful for any growth oriented company, not just tech companies. One of his key points was that most future products and services will include some form of software especially to help connect with the customers and partners. As a provider of consulting services in the area of product decisions for innovation, I see how this educational subject is directly related to the future sustainable growth of companies in the NJ area. Congratulations to NJTC for such a strong program. I am looking forward to many more.”

“Since making the leap from the corporate world to a small business start-up I have found it essential to always be on the lookout for resources, networks and organizations that support entrepreneurs and innovation. During this research and networking process I’ve learned that New Jersey has a terrific entrepreneurship support system. Technology innovation is leading the way, and NJTC is clearly a leader in bringing together all the important players, activities and resources within our growing technology community.”
