This quarter’s “Company Spotlight” highlights PrintCB, an Israeli company that YBI is working closely with via its new partnership with “The Junction”, one of the premier accelerator/venture capital programs in Tel-Aviv. PrintCB is actively looking to relocate to the Mahoning Valley and join YBI as a portfolio company. Though not currently a fit for VGV because of its location, it is certainly on VGV’s radar screen as a future opportunity.
Valley Growth Ventures has approved leading an investment in MedaSync, a provider of software solutions to the post-acute care market. The fund will invest $250,000 of a planned $750,000 round (note VGV will be helping the company attract the remainder, without which the investment will not close). We sat down with Ryan Edgerly, the CEO of MedaSync, to hear about current company activities, future plans, and the partnership with VGV.
The Tech Belt Energy and Innovation Center (TBEIC) announced a new Chief Operating Officer (COO) in August, Rick Stockburger. We learned more about Stockburger and his new role, the future of TBEIC, and the relationship between VGV and the Mahoning Valley.
