Last night a group of us from Beacon attended the 2010 NCTA 21 Awards event in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA) did a fantastic job organizing and planning this event. They had a record turnout of over 800 attendees! As a proud sponsor and partner of NCTA, Beacon presented the Life Sciences Company Award, which was one the 21 awards presented last night. Since my partner was “unfortunately” in Vegas attending Pubcon, I had the “opportunity” to present this award in front of a huge audience.
As you can imagine, it was a little nerve racking – especially because I was not sure of the correct pronunciation of the winning company (TransEnterix – my apologies if I messed it up). This was a great honor for me as well as for Beacon. This provided us with another opportunity to get some great visibility in front of the best technology companies in the state.
NCTA is a great organization whose primary mission is Making North Carolina Number One in Technology and Technology Number One in North Carolina. I highly recommend joining this organization and this link will provide you detailed information about the benefits of joining. Click here for more information.
