BioMer Innovations of Halifax released the following press release:
New start-up BioMer Innovations is picking up steam with another successful result; achieving a first place finish at the Boyne Clark Innovative Ideas Competition on March 20th, 2014.
The Nova Scotia Association of Community Business Development Corporations (CBDC), in cooperation with Common Good Solutions, organized the competition. Students from post-secondary institutions across Nova Scotia, including Dalhousie, Acadia, Saint Mary’s, Mount Saint Vincent, St F.X., CBU, and NSCC were challenged to develop an innovative product, invention, service, business venture or community service that has both a social impact and business viability.
As one of the 17 teams that were present from across the province, BioMer Innovations was able to present its innovative approach in solving chitosan market pains, through the utilization of an invasive, waste species of crab that are abundant in the Atlantic region. With a ten minute presentation, and time for questions and answers – the team from BioMer Innovations successfully pitched to the judges the value, scalability, and potential of their company.
The Co-founding team was conceived from the Entrepreneurship program offered at Saint Mary’s University, Sobey School of Business. This team is comprised of Danny Williams, Kirsten Osmond, and Jessica Herron. BioMer Innovations has begun its business development and is transitioning into its next phase of business and product development.
