FORGE hosted our second annual Manufacturing and Innovation Showcase virtually on October 22, where we heard finalist pitches from Floe, LLC, OmniVis, Flux Marine Ltd., and AeroShield Materials. Massachusetts House Majority Leader Wagner Joseph Wagner gave opening remarks detailing FORGE’s role in state economic recovery and we heard updates from last year’s event winners, RISE Robotics and Biobot Analytics.
This year’s Product Development Grant went to AeroShield Materials, and the Audience Choice Award, sponsored by M&T Bank, was awarded to Floe, LLC. Attendees also had the opportunity to network and visit the sponsor expo booths to make valuable connections.
